Walter Benjamin and the Architecture of Modernity

Here’s an interesting book/collection of essays about Walter Benjamin and his ideas about modernity / architecture / aesthetics / experience. This seems especially interesting with regard to Bruno Latour’s ‘anti-modernist’ position and the develop of modernist thinking about architecture and objects as such. I hope I have the time to read it in the next few weeks; Benjamin is still too much an unknown vantage point for me.
