Supermodernism: Architecture in the Age of Globalization

by Hans Ibelings

Paperback

$20.00

Overview

There are many indications to suggest that architecture has entered a new phase in the 1990's, and that the globalization making itself felt in all fields has contributed to a movement away from the postmodern. This volume explores the ramifications of architecture's emerging tendencies, and offers a speculative view of what's next. Topics as wide ranging as the effects of tourism, the glass box, and public space are addressed.
