Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The modern architecture covered in this volume dates from the end of the First World War to the present day. Both world wars ravaged populations and environments alike, giving rise to rapid rebuilding programmes. The availability of new materials and construction methods enabled architects worldwide to experiment in reconciling their individual visions with the forces driving post-industrial society. This richly illustrated overview of the great diversity of structures enhancing our contemporary world contains chapters on Homes and Housing, Art and Culture, Leisure and Recreation, Religious Architecture, Administration and Government, Office Buildings, and a complete index of the Architects and Buildings of the Period. This title is part of a trilogy of books published by Chaucer Press, lavishly portraying three hundred years of architecture, from the Georgian and Regency period through the Victorian and Edwardian era to the modern day.

Synopsis:

Spans the period from 1920 until today, and details the great diversity of international buildings, styles and technological developments that have provided such rich and imaginative heritage for everyone in the new millennium.
