Birkhäuser architectural guide: 20th century. France
In the 20th century, France has proved astonishingly fertile ground for modern architecture. The architectural ideas of Modernism and the avant garde are firmly rooted here and dominate the French architectural landscape unlike in any other country. Her architects are acclaimed throughout the world. Paris, a center for international architecture, rightly forms the focus of this guidebook with more than 100 notable buildings. However, this guidebook also does justice to the entire country with more than 450 buildings from all regions. The buildings are documented with photographs, drawings and texts, providing a comprehensive and portable guide.
