我们的医学痴迷和身体形象如何影响现代建筑。本书探讨了医学论述和诊断技术对现代建筑的形成，表征和接受的影响。它提出了20世纪初期的建筑受到当时医学的主要困扰：结核病及其主要诊断工具X射线，从而挑战了对现代建筑的正常理解。如果建筑话语从一开始就具有与建筑物和身体相关联的内容，那么它所描述的身体就是通过每种新的健康理论重建的医学身体。现代建筑师将他们的建筑作为一种保护和增强身体的医疗器械来展示。 X射线技术和现代建筑大约在同一时间诞生，并且是并行发展的。当X射线将人体的内部暴露给公众时，这栋现代建筑揭开了其内部的面纱，颠覆了私人与公共之间的关系。 Colomina建议，如果我们要谈论建筑物的最新技术，我们应该关注对疾病的主流痴迷以及对人体成像的最新技术，并询问它们对我们构想建筑的方式可能产生什么影响。
How our medical obsessions and the image of the body influence modern architecture. This book explores the impact of medical discourse and diagnostic technologies on the formation, representation and reception of modern architecture. It challenges the normal understanding of modern architecture by proposing that the architecture of the early 20th century was shaped by the dominant medical obsession of its time: tuberculosis and its primary diagnostic tool, the X-ray. If architectural discourse has from its beginning associated building and body, the body that it describes is the medical body, reconstructed by each new theory of health. Modern architects presented their architecture as a kind of medical instrument for protecting and enhancing the body. X-ray technology and modern architecture were born around the same time and evolved in parallel. While the X-ray exposed the inside of the body to the public eye, the modern building unveiled its interior, inverting the relationship between private and public. Colomina suggests that if we want to talk about the state of the art in buildings, we should look to the dominant obsessions about illness and the latest techniques of imaging the body-and ask what effects they may have on the way we conceive architecture.
