No one writes about architecture with more authority or skill than Witold Rybcznski (A Clearing in the Distance; Home; The Perfect House). In his latest accessible tome, the winner of the prestigious Vincent Scully Award for distinguished writing on the subject introduces general readers to modern and contemporary architecture. Using examples from the buildings of Frank Gehry, Robert A.M. Stern, and Rienzo Piano, he shows how successful structures embody both aesthetic form and practical function. How Architecture Works illustrates its points with 140 black and white illustrations. Editor's recommendation.
