Phaidon Editors

Review:

"Phaidon's colossal 20th Century World Architecture is a real tour de force. While the sheer volume of information is breathtaking, what impresses me most is the fascinating view of architecture in the 20th century created by the breadth of the projects and their contexts." - Michael Graves

"The new Phaidon publication, 20th Century World Architecture, documents the extraordinary quality and quantity of architecture produces during the last century. Is it possible for the work of the 21st century to match this prodigious output?" - Richard Meier

"Easily in the running for most engrossing coffee-table book of all time." - Publishers Weekly

". . .big, bold, beautiful. . ." - About.com

"A breathtaking overview. . ." - Los Angeles Times

". . .a monumental tome." - The Architect's Newspaper

"At a hefty 832 pages, 20th Century World Architecture: The Phaidon Atlas takes a truly global and remarkably comprehensive look at projects constructed between 1900 - 1999." - Architectural Digest

"This book is an atlas but it's also a snapshot: the 20th century as seen from 2012. What a view." - The Atlantic

"One of those books I will never finish perusing, as each time I turn the page I find something new. . .This is an investment for your home, written in a way that is very accessible to the layman. It is also, at its simplest, a collection of really inspiring images." - The Courier-Journal

". . . a beast of a book. But hoisting the tome onto your coffee table is worth it." - Architect Magazine

". . .a remarkable companion. . .unpack the book and you'll float into a perspective-altering history of 750 era-defining buildings." - NPR.org
