Modern Architecture: A Critical History (Third Revised and Enlarged Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This widely acclaimed survey of twentieth-century architecture and its origins has become a classic since it first appeared in 1980. Kenneth Frampton revised and enlarged it in 1985, and has now further expanded it, bringing the story up to date and examining areas and issues of particular significance today. The completely new last chapter focuses on four countries where individual talent and enlightened patronage have combined to produce a comprehensive and convincing architectural culture: Finland, France, Spain and Japan. The bibliography has also been reviewed and extended, making this volume more indispensable than ever.

Review:

"One of the most important works on modern architecture we have today." Architectural Design

Review:

"A useful and wide-ranging work of superior architectural scholarship...marked throughout by a consistently mature critical intelligence." New York Review of Books

The bibliography has been updated and expanded, making this volume more complete and indispensable than ever. 420 illustrations.
