Modernism and modernization in architecture
This book charts the history of modernism and its resurgence as an influential force that is cutting across disciplines to affect the international design world and the built environment. It captures the new mood of today's modernism in a series of thought-provoking essays that cover the fertile ground between architecture, fashion, and politics, while also embracing a broad cross-section of influential architects, from Le Corbusier to Rem Koolhaas.
