Description

Talk About Contemporary Architecture provides the general public with the keys to understanding architecture from the twentieth and 21st centuries, and simultaneously recalls the great edifices of earlier eras. The work is broken down into chapters that decipher a diverse range of essential concepts and answer the fundamental questions on the subject: What is contemporary architecture? When did it arise? What is its purpose? What are its newest innovations? Who are the leading architects and their most significant contributions? How can different styles be recognized? The answers to all of these questions are explained in clear and engaging text, guiding the reader to appreciate this art form that pervades all public spaces and is of universal interest.

Designed as an accessible introduction, this work highlights thirty essential dates that changed the face of architecture, as well as the movers and shakers of the architecture world who have initiated and propelled movements ranging from minimalism to modernism to neo-classicism. The book is completed by a detailed chronology and a glossary of the essential vocabulary needed to talk about architecture.
