Modern Architecture

by Alan Colquhoun

Eminent scholar Alan Colquhoun provides a fascinating analysis of international modernism in the world of architecture, and the complex motivations behind this revolutionary movement. Exploring the evolution of the movement from Art Nouveau in the 1890s to the megastructures of the 1960s, Colquhoun assesses the triumphs and failures of the era, along with the movement's main architects and their roles as acknowledged masters.
