Modern Architecture 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
pranogajec on LibraryThing 4 days ago
Filled with insightful and trenchant analysis. Two shortcomings: the post-WWII era is woefully underrepresented (with almost no discussion of postmodernism), as is the non-Western dimension of modernism. However, it's much clearer and more concise for an introductory text than, say, Frampton's Modern Architecture, or William Curtis' Modern Architecture since 1900.
