Description



Contemporary World Architecture is a comprehensive survey of international architecture at the end of the twentieth century, offering a critical study of the social, cultural and political changes that are shaping the built environment.

Continual advances in building technology, shifting demographics and increasing levels of global communications each have a continuing impact on architectural ideology and building types.

The book is divided into thirteen chapters, each organized typologically by building function: Visual Arts, Performance, Learning, Religion, Consumerism, Living, Workplace, Industry, Leisure, Transport, Sport, Civic Realm and Towers. It presents over 660 recent public and private buildings by many of the worlds key protagonists, and examines the evolution of new architectural solutions from the late 1960s to the end of the century.
