Overview

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. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This thick catalog presents seven thematic essays by leading scholars and commentators on 20th-century architecture, covering such topics as Latin America, Japan, urbanism, regionalism, and "The Exhibitionist House." The essays vary in usefulness and value, from Beatriz Colomina's pungent commentaries on modern housing prototypes presented at international exhibitions to Anthony Vidler's highly abstract treatment of the space-time continuum. The authors have taken pains to include as much regionalist material as possible; indeed, the character of modern architecture morphs from internationalism into regionalism under the impact of this fair-sized volume. The result is a more politically correct treatment of modern architecture. The catalog accompanies an exhibition of the same name that will appear at leading museums around the world over the next two years, but the text will limit the book's appeal to serious readers.--Peter S. Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
