Space, Time and Architecture
The book had its genesis in the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures at Harvard University in the spring of , and it was recognized from the outset as a series of related essays on seminal topics in the organization of human spaces, obtaining fresh insights, not from a panoramic survey, "but by isolating and examining certain specific events intensively, penetrating and exploring them in the manner of the close-up " as Giedion outlined his method. Giedion revised and enlarged the book five times after the first edition in 2nd edition ; 3rd edition ; 4th edition ; 5th edition The book has continued to be printed since then, most recently in All editions have been published by the original publisher, Harvard University Press. The major change from the first to the second edition was the predominance of coverage given to the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto , more than any other architect in the book, including Le Corbusier , when Aalto had barely been mentioned in the first edition. The reason given for this, is that Giedion saw Aalto as the architect best demonstrating the move away from International Style modernism synonymous with the Bauhaus towards a more organic architecture.
