The Millenial edition of Twentieth Century Architecture: A Visual History adheres to the original book's aim: to chart chronologically the development, strength, diversity and complexity of modern architecture. In attempting to provide a record of the twentieth century's architecture, author Dennis Sharp has purposely chosen examples which have had some generic importance or have played some innovatory part in architecture over the past 100 years.
Sharp tracks the development of architecture through periods such as modernism, revivalism, avant garde, classicism and expressionism in a decade-by-decade study of the changing face of structural design, art and culture. When the first edition of this book appeared in 1972 it very rapidly achieved the status of essential work of reference. Now, 30 years later, this greatly expanded and revised edition adds the key buildings and architectural concepts of three more decades to the survey and thus covers the entire century.
Industry professionals, students and all those fascinated by the art of architecture will benefit from this comprehensive guide to the great and sometimes controversial architectural achievements of our age.
