Abstract:

"The most comprehensive and up-to-date survey of twentieth-century architecture ever published, this volume presents a global perspective on some of the most significant works, ideas, and directions over the past one hundred years. With more than three hundred illustrations covering the major landmarks and architects of the century, it will appeal to a wide audience. Exploring cutting-edge ideas, the book also offers the sophisticated professional reader fresh viewpoints."--BOOK JACKET. "The broad focus of the book is the complex relationship between innovation and tradition and the profound impact of technology on architecture and urbanism throughout the twentieth century. It explores the house and the city; the grand international movements and regional vernacular styles; the forces that built this century and thoughts about where the next one will take us."--BOOK JACKET.
