Revised, Expanded and Redesigned.
'Modern Architecture Since 1900' is now well established as the standard work on twentieth-century architecture. Truly worldwide in scope, it combines a general outline of the growth of a modern tradition with a masterly analysis and interpretation of individual buildings. The author adopts an integrated approach blending practical, aesthetic and social dimensions - yet the stress is on the formal and symbolic aspects of the art. The book deals with the expression of ideas in architectural terms.
For this new edition the text has been radically revised and expanded, incorporating much new knowledge and a fresh appreciation of the range of the complexity of modern architecture. Seven chapters have been added, three of them at the end in a section on recent world developments. This avoids fashionable rhetoric and places contemporary architecture in a historical and cultural perspective. There are many new illustrations in colour as well as black and white, and a wealth of plans and drawings. The bibliography and notes have been extended and brought up to date.
