This is a must-have architecture bible. It deals with a century of great buildings and their creators. This is the be-all-end-all reference work for architecture in the 20th century. 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. This edition brings our classic title up to date with more color photos, more architect biographics, and new insights on recent architectural trends and movements.
