"The architecture of the 20th century" is an extraordinary book of diverse styles and ideas, from purist to expressive, monumental to picturesque.

This chronological overview delves into the clash of aesthetic and commercial ambitions, exploring the work of renowned architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, Antoni Gaudí, Frank O. Gehry, Shigeru Ban, and many others, alongside lesser-known names from around the world.

With 31 chapters organized chronologically, this comprehensive volume captures the ideas, trends, and transitions that shaped the architectural landscape of the 1900s. Lavishly illustrated with large-format photos, drawings, and floor plans, it provides a deep understanding of the century's architectural evolution.

The biographical appendix covers the greatest architects of the era, celebrating both established figures and emerging talents. This reference work is a treasure trove for anyone fascinated by the zeitgeist and building design of the 20th century, showcasing not only individual architects but also the groups, movements, and styles that defined an era of construction.

Coffee table books that make your space interesting. Inspire creativity, spark conversation, and create a fuller life.
