Synopsis:

An analysis of influential work by seminal architects, including Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, and Rem Koolhaas.

Featuring more than one hundred of the most significant and influential buildings of the twentieth century, this second edition has been expanded and updated to include new buildings from the early part of the twenty-first century and work by architects who have risen to increasing international prominence. Richly illustrated with hundreds of architectural drawings and photographs, this book includes classic works by such seminal architects as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, and Alvar Aalto, as well as masterpieces by more recent masters such as Norman Foster and Frank Gehry.

For each building there are numerous, accurate scale plans showing typical floors, together with elevations, sections, and site plans where appropriate. All of these have been specially commissioned for the book and are based on the most reliable information and sources. A concise text supplemented by full-color images explains the significant architectural features of each building and the influences it shows or had generated. Cross-references to other buildings in the book highlight the various connections between these key structures. As an added bonus for readers, a free CD-ROM containing digital files of all the drawings is included inside the book.

650 illustrations, including 150 four-color illustrations
