A Visual History of Twentieth-Century Architecture
Book Jacket Excerpt:
"The VISUAL HISTORY is arranged chronologically by decades. An introduction sets The scene, looking back to the engineering achievements of the nineteenth century, to the architects' technical inheritance and to the aesthetic problems that have occupied the builders and theorists of this century. Each decade section, from 1900 to 1970, is prefaced by a short evaluation of the developments within those years, and within each decade, all significant completed buildings which have had a generic influence on twentieth-century architecture are examined. The buildings are presented in clear factual terms. The present condition of each is given where known, and each building discussed is illustrated with photographs, drawings or plans.
The book provides, in addition, a chronology of buildings erected between 1900 and 1970, a selected bibliography, and a comprehensive index. This s an essential work of reference for the student, the architect, the historian, and the general reader interested in the architectural achievement or our times."
