Summary
Carla Yanni tells a compelling story of therapeutic design, from Americas earliest purpose-built institutions for the insane to the asylum construction frenzy in the second half of the century. Generously illustrated, The Architecture of Madness is a fresh and original look at the American medical establishments century-long preoccupation with therapeutic architecture as a way to cure social ills
