Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier: The Romantic Legacy
The original and controversial architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier has had a profound influence on 20th-century architecture worldwide. In this fully-illustrated work Etlin offers his insights into the influence that formed the basis for the architectural development of arguably the greatest architects of the 20th century. He focuses on the main principles of progressive 19th-century architectural thought: the architectural system; the picturesque; philosphical eclecticism; and the spirit of the times.
