Photography, Modern Architecture, and Design: The Alberto Sartoris Collection : Objects from the Vitra Design Museum
EPFL Press in collaboration with the Vitra Design Museum, 2005 - Architectural photography - 224 pages
Italian-Swiss architect Alberto Sartoris was an energetic propangandist of the modern movement, amassing a remarkable photography collection of modern architecture which he published between 1932 and 1957. He willed over 8000 original prints of buildings by 650 architects around the world-to the Archives de la Construction Moderne in Lausanne. This book features 180 original prints of both recognized and forgotten buildings in the modern style. They also document the role of photography in 20th-century architectural history, which provided the "image" of modern architecture to the world at large. From the Vitra Design Museum.
