100 Years of Architecture

100 Years of Architecture

Publisher: Laurence King
Author: Alan Powers
Dimensions: 10 1/8" x 1 1/8" X 9 3/16"  

This unique visual history documents in pictures the most exciting and dynamic period of architecture: from the early 20th century to the present day, covering all the key movements, styles and architects, together with many lesser known but important names and buildings. 

 Through archival and full-colour photography, plans and architectural drawings, the book illustrates the changing nature of architecture and its expansion during this period from the early developments of concrete and steel, through the eruption of Modernism to the provocative arguments of Postmodernism in the 1980s, right up to today’s superstars and global brands

 Written by an expert on 20th-century architecture, 100 Years of Architecture has the authority to serve both architecture students and professionals, but packed with more than 300 images, it will also appeal to the general reader.
