1 Review
"Twentieth-Century Architecture explores the roots of modern architecture, explaining how history and the rapidly changing social and political conditions of modern times have affected the built environment. What, for example, was the role of Nazi German, Soviet Russia and Fascist Italy in the story of the century's buildings? The book also discusses the innovations and inventions that have permeated modern buildings and structures and the way that the traditions of the past have imbued the modern craft of architecture." "Containing nearly 400 images, this book is an accessible yet authoritative guide to a century of global architecture."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
