Architecture 2000: Predictions and Methods
Publisher: Studio Vista 1971 Author: Charles Jencks ISBN: 289798434 Format: Softcover, 128pp, 205x195mm
This stimulating book on the evolution of architecture in the last quarter of the twentieth century penetratingly applies methods of forecasting and prediction developed in the scientific disciplines to the area of the built environment. The greater part of the book deals with what the Charles Jencks saw as the six major traditions in architecture since 1920, and how they were likely to develop, merge, and separate between 1970 and 2010. Jencks' predictions are first schematically illustrated in his completely original 'evolutionary tree' and then discussed in detail.
