Description

 This visually stunning and lavishly produced guide to the great buildings and structures of the modern age from around the world is divided into nine clear sections, and each movement in architecture from 1900 to the present day is represented: Arts and Crafts, Classicism, Organic, Modernism, Postmodernism, Robotic, Cities, and Futures. Focusing on one building per page, Jonathan Glancey, former Architecture and Design editor at the "Guardian", discusses over 470 landmark structures from those now regarded as classics of modern architecture such as L'Institut du Monde Arab in Paris and the Sydney Opera House, to recent buildings such as the Swiss Re building in London and the Parliamentary Library in New Delhi. With over 470 superbly reproduced colour and black and white photographs, and every essential building, structure and architect featured, this is a must-have book for anyone interested in modern architecture.
