Product Description

The A-Z of modern architecture: An unprecedented architecture encyclopedia
 
Unlike most architecture encyclopedias, which tend to concentrate more on buildings and floor plans than on their designers, this tome puts the architects in the spotlight, profiling individuals so that readers can get a clear overview of their bodies of work.

With more than 270 entries, the book covers not only architects but also groups, movements, and styles from the 19th to the 21st centuries. Each architect's entry features a portrait and short biography as well as a description of important works, historical context, and general approach. The lavish illustrations include examples of the best architectural photography in the modern era.

The selected works in this two-volume edition form an overview of the modern movement, providing a context for modern architecture in today's world. Modern Architecture A-Z is a comprehensive resource that no architecture professional, fan, or student should be without.
