MODERN ARCHITECTURE A-Z. New edition. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. 696 pp. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783836556316 In English.
Publisher's description: With more than 280 entries, this architectural A--Z, now part of our Bibliotheca Universalis series, offers an indispensable overview of the key players in the creation of modern space. From the period spanning the 19th to the 21st century, pioneering architects are featured with a portrait, concise biography, as well as a description of her or his important work. Like a bespoke global architecture tour, you'll travel from Manhattan skyscrapers to a Japanese concert hall, from Gaudi's Palau Guell in Barcelona to Lina Bo Bardi's sports and leisure center in a former factory site in Sao 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.
