A striking dissonance exists between the overwhelming American landscape and the underwhelming architecture of its strip malls, fast food chains, motels and tract housing. In an undertaking that is part travelogue, art book and architectural survey, "Architecture of Normal" charts the patterns created by reigning modes of transportation and examines how people came to accept the bland, branded boxes lining America's streets and freeways as architecture. Beginning with a portrait of ambulatory Native American societies and the introduction of horses by the Spaniards, Kaven discusses the built environment shaped by trains, cars, planes and rockets. This highly visual narrative includes extensive historical photography and Daniel Kaven's own art.
