In 1896 Otto Wagner broke ranks with the European academic tradition and ... many of his colleagues when he published his concise, impassioned plea for an end to eclecticism and for a more rational approach to design suited to contemporary needs, materials, and technologies.

Also available in paper binding, $14.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
