Author(s): Colin Davies
In this engaging and thought-provoking book, Colin Davies subjects the canonical architecture of the twentieth century to a thorough reassessment. Rather than repeating the standard wisdom, Davies questions the values and judgements that are so often the mainstay of architectural surveys, and in doing so asks: what is the importance of the style we know as Modernism?
Combining a fascinating, well-researched, and, above all, readable text with photographs and drawings, this history is a must for students and lovers of modern architecture alike.
Colin Davies was Professor of Architectural Theory at London Metropolitan University and is the author of several books, including Key Houses of the Twentieth Century and Thinking About Architecture (both Laurence King).
