Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a visual tour de force of the best of modern architecture in a format that pays proper homage to their designers."
~Trend Hunter Magazine

"Because it cannot be touched, it is close to impossible to experience architecture on paper. The Modern Architecture Pop-Up Book, attempts to bridge the gap through pop-ups that replicate the most innovative contemporary architectural masterpieces from around the world." ~Bal Harbour Magazine

"...a marvel of construction...that will both amaze and edify." ~W Magazine

"There are architecture books, and then there is The Modern Architecture Pop-Up Book. If you'd like to add a third dimension to your own architectural experience (and who wouldn't!), give this one a shot." ~Gearcrave.com

"Architectural history unfolds--literally--in "Modern Architecture Pop-Up"...the book offers a speedy grand tour of notable buildings." ~The New York Times

"...how all our parents were so wrong, we aren't too old for pop-up books we just needed age appropriate pop-up books and thanks to Anton Radevsky and David Sokol for making "The Modern Architecture Pop-Up book," we have that book now." ~The Tastemakers Society

"Accompanied by illustrations, photographs and elaborate pop-ups, the talent and imagination of architects and builders of the modern era is brought to life. Ranging from the nineteenth century to the present day, the pages follow the development of modern architecture." ~AolLiving.com

“Even the best architectural photography often fails to gve a sense of the volumes and massing of a building. Devotees of modernist architecture now have a nifty book to help them understand buildings they will likely see only in photographs.” ~Modernism Magazine

“…this book takes readers’ through modern architecture’s beginnings in the Romantic Era to projections into the discipline’s future.” ~Creativity Magazine

“If the thought of a pop-up book fills you with childish visions of 3D fairy castles, this one is very grown-up relief.” ~Distill Magazine

    Pop-Up Book Review

    This book was on my 2009 christams list. It is incredibly informative and interactive. The pictures and content are good quality. Some of the pop-ups are stiff and fragile and will need a tender touch. It makes a good coffee table or "look what i got" show off book.

    MODERN ARCHITECTURE POP-UP BOOK DOES NOT POP-OUT

    THIS BOOK WAS REALLY NOT WORTH THE MONEY. I SAW THIS BOOK SUGGESTED IN A MODERNISM MAGAZINE AND SINCE THE MAGAZINE IS QUALITY I THOUGHT THAT THIS BOOK WOULD BE QUALITY. IT WAS NOT A WELL PUT TOGETHER BOOK. TO ME IT WAS AMATUERISH AND NOT A GOOD QUALITY BOOK AND AS I HAVE STATED IN THIS REVIEW NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

    THE BOOK WAS WRAPPED IN PLASTIC SO YOU COULD NOT PREVIEW IT BEFORE PURCHASE. IF I COULD HAVE LOOKED AT IT BEFORE I BOUGHT IT, I WOULD NOT HAVE PURCHASED IT.
