From the Back Cover:

This second volume of the landmark Architectural Theory anthology surveys the development of architectural theory from the Franco-Prussian war of 1871 until the end of the twentieth century. Together with volume I, it is the first anthology to follow the full range of architectural literature from its beginnings in classical times to its impact today.

Drawing on diverse international texts, this book explores various reform movements in Europe and North America, including Arts & Crafts; spans the technological and conceptual innovations of the late-nineteenth century in connection with the rise and development of modern theory; and reviews early critiques of modernism, the “post-modern” discussions of the 1970s, and post-structural and regionalist thought in the 1980s. The editors also consider the counter-movements of the 1990s – inspired by the digital revolution, technological innovations, and growing concerns for sustainable design.

This anthology maps a wide array of debates in architectural history, placing the writings of starchitects like Koolhaas, Eisenman, and Lynn alongside the work of prominent architectural critics. It also sheds new historical perspective on topics such as ecology and sustainability, as well as CAD and blobs. The result is an inspiring and comprehensive resource for those studying or working in architectural theory and art history.
