Unlike most architecture encyclopedias, which tend to concentrate more on buildings and floor plans than their designers, this tome puts the architects in the spotlight, profiling individuals so that readers can get a clear overview of their bodies of work. Each architect's entry features a portrait, quote, and short biography as well as a description of important works, historical context, and general approach; illustrations include numerous drawings, photographs, and floor plans. The book's A to Z entries covers not only architects but also groups, movements, and styles from the 18th to the 21st centuries. The selected works in this two-volume edition form an overview of the modern movement, providing a context for modern architecture in today's world. With 600 entries and 5,200 illustrations, The A-Z of Modern Architecture is a comprehensive resource that no architecture professional, fan, or student should be without.
