Synopses & Reviews
The ultimate architectural reference work (TASCHEN's 25th anniversary special edition) This is the be-all-end-all reference work for architecture in the 20th century. From Frank Lloyd Wright to Gaudi to Frank O. Gehry to Shigeru Ban and all the best stuff in between, it's all here. The chronologically organized chapters put it all into perspective, illustrated by hundreds of large-format photos as well as a plenitude of drawings and floor plans. The biographical appendix covers all of the century's greatest architects, including today's new talents. This special expanded edition, presented in two volumes packaged in a slipcase, brings our classic title up to date with coverage up until the present day, more color photos, more architect biographies, and new chapters on recent architectural trends and movements.
