Front Cover
Elsevier/Architectural Press, 2007 - Architecture - 255 pages
Once again, new interpretations are presented of some of the most famous architecture of the period. Work by lesser-known architects, whose influence and role have been overlooked by conventional histories of the subject, is discussed. The case study structure allows each example to be discussed and used as a springboard to explore different theoretical approaches. Filled with beautiful photographs, plans and architect's drawings, this is a clear and accessible discussion on a period of architecture that engages many questions still under debate in architecture today.

1. The second installment of this unique commentary on modern architecture
2. Provides the reader with a fresh approach to the analysis of post-war architecture
3. Beautifully illustrated case studies provide an accessible and inspiring source of information
