About this title


This revised edition of "20th Century Architecture" extends its coverage up until 2000, and includes more colour photographs, more architect biographies, and new chapters on deconstructivism and the new living architecture. From Frank Lloyd Wright to Gaudi to Frank O. Gehry to Shigeru Ban and everything in between, the book attempts to cover it all. The chronologically organized chapters put it all into perspective, illustrated by hundreds of large format photographs as well as drawings and floor plans. The biographical appendix covers all of the century's greatest architects, including the newest talents.

About the Author:

Peter Gossel runs a practice for the design of museums and exhibitions. He is the editor of TASCHEN's monographs on Julius Shulman, R. M. Schindler, John Lautner and Richard Neutra, as well as the editor of Basic Architecture series. Gabriele Leuthauser worked as a scholarly associate at Centrum Industriekultur Nurnberg until 1984. Since then she has established herself as a freelance consultant for exhibitions, museums, and industrial enterprises.
