A New History of Modern Architecture
$80.00 Hardcover SEE Inside!
Considering architects as diverse as Frank Lloyd Wright, Antonio Gaudi, and Shiguru Ban, this ambitious volume addresses architecture of the twentieth century – and twenty-first century – worldwide. Organized around ideas, rather than a straight-forward chronology, this book allows for the discrete examination of key themes including typologies, movements, and biographical studies, as well as the impact of evolving building technology, environmental concerns, country-specific influences, and digital design. Chapters necessarily overlap to allow for the discrete examination of key themes including typologies, movements, and biographical studies. With a new definition that is more expansive than ever before, this book manages to extend the boundaries of modernism well beyond the cliches of the Europe-based International Style, to create a new canon. Combining a readable text with over 800 photographs, plans, and sections, this reassessment of modern architecture is a must for architecture students and enthusiasts alike.
