A previously unpublished manuscript by Henri Lefebvre, Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment is forthcoming with University of Minnesota Press. Edited by Łukasz Stanek and translated by Robert Bonnano, this is going to be a significant moment in the discussion of his work, especially since the manuscript remains unpublished in French.

The relationship between bodily pleasure, space, and architecture—from one of the twentieth century’s most important urban theorists Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment, the first publication of Henri Lefebvre’s only book devoted to architecture, redefines architecture as a mode of imagination rather than a specialized process or a collection of monuments. Lefebvre calls for an architecture of jouissance—of pleasure or enjoyment—centered on the body and its rhythms and based on the possibilities of the senses.
