Featuring buildings of the twentieth century, this edition includes buildings from the early part of the twenty-first century. Illustrated with architectural drawings and photographs, this book includes works by such seminal architects as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, and Alvar Aalto. For each building there are scale plans showing typical floors, together with elevations, sections, and site plans where appropriate. All of these have been commissioned for the book and are based on information and sources. A text supplemented by images explains the significant architectural features of each building and the influences it shows or had generated. Cross-references to other buildings in the book highlight the various connections between these key structures. A CD-ROM containing digital files drawings is included inside the book.
