February 18, 2019

After 1945 it was not just Europe’s parliamentary buildings that promised to house democracy. Architecture, Democracy, and Emotions shows that even hotels in Turkey, Dutch shopping malls and Housing programs in the Soviet Union proposed new democratic attitudes and feelings. The book focuses on competing promises of consumer democracy, welfare democracy, and socialist democracy. Spanning from Turkey across Eastern and Western Europe to the United States, the chapters investigate the emotional politics of housing and representation.
