This series of monographs is devoted to the great twentieth century architects who created the modern architectural idiom. Their projects and buildings have pioneered the styles and construction techniques of our time; their ideas have played a decisive part in the planning and development of our urban and domestic environment. Each book opens with an account of the architect’s life and a critical appraisal of his work. The work is the set out in an extensive series of plates. A wide selection of buildings – ranging from office blocks, hotels and public buildings to high-rise apartments and private houses – is graphically illustrated in some hundred pages photographs, which include May full-page colour plates. The plates are accompanied by detailed notes and supplemented by numerous plans and drawings. A chronology and a bibliography are included for further reference. The series provides a comprehensive, readable and reasonably priced introduction to the work of the outstanding modern architects, and will be of great value both to the student of architecture and general reader. For a list of the first twelve titles, see the back flap of the jacket.
