Description

This is the be-all-end-all reference work for architecture in the 20th century. From lofty "starchitects" to lesser-known names around the world, this chronological overview takes you to the heart of the ideas, trends, and transitions that defined the 1900s.From Frank Lloyd Wright to Antoni Gaudi to Frank O. Gehry to Shigeru Ban and all the best stuff in-between, it's all here. The chronologically organized chapters put it all into perspective, illustrated by hundreds of large-format photos as well as a plenitude of drawings and floor plans. The biographical appendix covers all of the century's greatest architects, including today's new talents.

An indispensable reference work and a must for all lovers of architecture!
