Description

Unlike most architecture encyclopaedias, which tend to concentrate more on buildings and floor plans than 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. By researching the best illustrations available from archives and prominent architectural photographers all over the world, this publication reaches an up to now unknown visual quality. 600 architects from the 18th to the 21st centuries are listed A to Z in this 1080-page, XL-sized volume, providing a comprehensive resource that no architecture professional, fan, or student should be without. Entries include: architects portrait, quote and short biography; description of important works, historical context and general approach; and numerous drawings, photographs and plans.
