Description

Featuring more than 100 of the most significant and influential buildings of the 20th century, this second edition includes both classic works by such seminal architects as Le Courbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe and Alvar Aalto, as well as those by more recent masters, such as Norman Foster, Frank Gehry and Rem Koolhaas. Addtional buildings and images make this new edition even more comprehensive and up-to-date.

For each of the buildings included there are numerous, accurate scale plans showing typical floors, together with elevations, sections and site plans where appropriate. All of these have been specially commissioned for the book and are based on the most reliable information and sources. There is also a concise text explaining the significant architectural features of the building and the influences it shows or generated, together with full-colour images. Cross-references to other buildings in the book highlight the various connections between these key structures.
