Third Typology and Other Essays
"The Third Typology and Other Essays" comprises a collection of Anthony Vidler's writings, opening with his 1976 editorial for Oppositions, "The Third Typology". Looking at theory and design from 1965 through to today, Vidler analyses changing ideas in the theory and history of architecture through a wide selection of essays and extracts from sources such as Oppositions, The Princeton Journal, Beaux-Arts, Skyline, and Artforum. Included among this selection of essays is a section dedicated to the Ledoux Museum he designed for the Saline de Chaux, France. Other publications by Vidler include "Claude-Nicolas Ledoux: Architecture and Social Reform at the End of the Ancient Regime" which won the Society of Architectural Historians' Henry-Russell Hitchcock Award, "The Architectural Uncanny: Essays in the Modern Unhomely" and "Warped Space: Architecture and Anxiety in Modern Culture", "Histories of the Immediate Present: Inventing Architectural Modernism", and "James Frazer Stirling: Notes from the Archive".

A historian and critic of modern and contemporary architecture, specialising in French architecture and the Enlightenment to the present, he has received awards and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), and was a Getty Scholar for Art History. He is a fellow at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and received the architecture award from the American Academy of the Arts and Letters in 2011. Anthony Vidler is Professor and Dean of the Irwin S Chanin School of Architecture, Cooper Union, New York.
