Ordinary. Banal. Quotidian. These words are rarely used to praise architecture, but in fact they represent the interests of a growing number of architects looking to escape the ever-quickening cycles of consumption and fashion that often reduce architecture to a stylish fad. Architecture of the Everyday is a plea for building that is emphatically unmonumental and antiheroic, an architecture rooted in the commonplace and the routines of daily life.
