An encyclopedia of modern architecture.
With almost 300 entries, this architectural A to Z offers an indispensable overview of the key players in the creation of modern space. Covering modern architecture from the 19th into the 21st century, pioneering architects are each featured with a portrait and a concise biography, as well as a description of his or her important work.
Like a bespoke global architecture tour, this book will allow you to travel from Manhattan skyscrapers to a Japanese concert hall, from Antoni Gaudí’s Palau Güell in Barcelona to Lina Bo Bardi’s sports and leisure center on a former factory site in São Paulo. You’ll take in Gio Ponti’s colored geometries, Zaha Hadid’s free-flowing futurism, the luminous interiors of SANAA, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s unique blend of Scottish tradition and elegant japonisme.
The book’s A to Z entries also cover groups, movements, and styles to position these leading individual architects within broader building trends across time and geography, including International Style, Bauhaus, De Stijl, and much more. With illustrations including some of the best architectural photography of the modern era, this is a comprehensive resource for any architecture professional, student, or devotee.
