The must-have architecture manual: A century of great buildings and their creators This is the be-all-end-all reference work for architecture in the 20th century. From Frank Lloyd Wright to Antoni Gaudí 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. An indispensable reference work and an absolute must for all lovers of architecture!
