Synopsis: In a book that suggests how good Modern was before it went wrong, Reyner Banham details the European discovery of this concrete Atlantis and examines a number of striking architectural instances where aspects of the International Style are anticipated by U.S. industrial buildings.

From Library Journal: Three engaging, interconnected essays, written with a large dash of the first person, about the development of concrete construction in American factories and in grain elevators, and the impact of these forms on European thought about modernism and architectureevidenced in such classic examples as Gropius's Fagus factory (which was American-financed) and the Lingotto Fiat factory. Banham has looked at the evidence with fresh eyes, done original research, and produced a first-rate alternative, albeit in a limited sphere, to the standard histories of modern architecture, finding antecedents in American commerical architecture for many aspects of the International Style. Stimulating and highly recommended. Jack Perry Brown, Ryerson & Burnham Libs., Art Inst. of Chicago
