Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Glancy, architecture and design editor of the British newspaper , avoids controversy by including nearly every architecturally-important modern building in the (mostly western) world<-->nearly 400 in all. A large photo of each is accompanied by a brief description of the structure and its maker. One-page introductions begin each of the eight sections: arts and crafts, classicism, organic, modernism, postmodernism, robotic, cities, and futures. Annotation c.
