      1. An exhaustive look at how modern postwar architecture in America, and a related fetishism of domesticity, were strongly shaped by the tools and technologies developed by the military—how, in Buckminster Fuller’s words, American architects turned ‘weaponry into livingry.’ An important consideration of the cultural effects of the Cold War conflict and its lingering aesthetics and ideological impact, Colomina’s analysis of images from various fields is truly cross-disciplinary.
