Fifty of the world’s modern architectural masterpieces, constructed between 1950 and the present, are analysed through specially commissioned drawings that reveal the principles and details of what makes a building meaningful and enduring. Starting from its site, each work is analysed through its surroundings, use of natural light, volumes and massing; its program and circulation; and its details, fenestration and ornamentation, showing the reader how the building works as a cohesive whole.
Aimed at architects, students and everyone who appreciates great buildings, ‘The Elements of Modern Architecture’ will be an essential reference and inspiration for generations to come.
