The Master Builders: Le Corbusier, Mies Van Der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright (Norton Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Le Corbusier gave to modern design a sure and brilliant sense of form; Mies brought an almost Gothic discipline of structure; and Wright heralded a new and dramatic concept of space and freedom.

About the Author

The late Peter Blake, an architect, once served as head of the architecture and design department of the Museum of Modern Art, editor in chief of Architectural Forum, and chairman of the department of architecture at Catholic University.
