About this title


A collection of articles selected from those published during the 1980s in Architecture, the monthly magazine of the American Institute of Architecture. The selection represents not only the best of contemporary American architecture but also, through in-depth articles and stunning images, outstanding architectural journalism. Profusely illustrated.

From Library Journal:

This is a collection of 45 essays previously published in Architecture , a publication of the American Institute of Architects. Each essay presents a structure representative of the best architecture or significant trends of the decade. Examples include the glass-and-steel "Crystal Cathedral" designed by Philip Johnson for Robert Schuller's electronic ministry, Michael Graves's colorful postmodern public buildings, and Frank Gehry's spatially ambiguous residences incorporating corrugated metal and chain-link fencing. Witty, accessible essays review the structures' conception and execution, aesthetic successes and failures, structural integrity, and relevance for purpose and place. Superb illustrations, including plans, drawings, and color photos, increase the book's appeal. Fourteen additional essays by designers and critics, not previously published, analyze the character of architecture of the 1980s. Recommended for art and architecture collections in public and academic libraries.
