Description

 Like a bespoke global architecture tour, you’ll travel from Manhattan  skyscrapers to a Japanese concert hall, from Gaudí’s Palau Güell in  Barcelona to Lina Bo Bardi’s sports and leisure center in a former  factory site in São Paulo. You’ll take in Gio Ponti’s colored  geometries, Zaha Hadid’s free-flowing futurism, the luminous interiors  of SANAA, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s unique blend of Scottish  tradition and elegant japonisme.  The book’s A to Z entries also  cover groups, movements, and styles to position these leading individual  architects within broader building trends across time and geography,  including International Style, Bauhaus, De Stijl, and much more. With  illustrations including some of the best architectural photography of  the modern era, this is a comprehensive resource for any architecture  professional, student, or devotee.
