Publisher: Phaidon ISBN: 9780714873190 Author: Jean-Louis Cohen Format: Papercover, 528pp, 270x205mm
Jean-Louis Cohen, one of the world's leading architectural historians, has written a compelling account of the developments that have shaped the world in which we live today.
This highly accessible book begins with the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889, tracing architecture's evolution to the early twenty-first century's globalised architectural culture. Illustrated with hundreds of drawings and photographs as well as portraits, publications, diagrams, film stills, and more, this survey places radical developments in architecture in a larger context, among those of art, technology, urbanism, and critical theory.
