20 CENTURY WORLD ARCHITECTURE
Matèria: Arquitectura referència / història
Following the recent publication of the editors’ massive tome The Art Museum, Phaidon offers another gargantuan marvel that could double as its own coffee table, this time focused upon “a truly global selection of buildings constructed during the 20th century.” Organized by continent like a standard atlas, within each section buildings are categorized into 13 different typologies, and keys for each region show which types predominate. Maps of trade flow and architect migration over the course of the century show how design talents moved toward money or away from political strife. As the constructions are grouped by location rather than age, readers get a sense of how buildings speak to each other and their local contexts. Photographs, sketches, and site plans are included for each of the 750 projects, for a total of 5,500 images, and sidebar texts note innovative design practices.
