Modern Architecture [9780500204443]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This highly acclaimed survey of modern architecture and its origins has become a classic since it first appeared in 1980. For this extensively revised and updated fifth edition, Kenneth Frampton has added many new chapters that explore in detail the ongoing modernist tradition in architecture across the globe in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, and the varied ways in which practices worldwide are responding to the geographical, climatic, material and cultural context of their buildings and to such issues as sustainability. The bibliography has also been updated and expanded, making this volume more indispensable than ever.
AUTHOR: Kenneth Frampton's work as an architect, writer, critic, educator and academic over the last fifty years has shaped and informed the outlook of countless students and architects. Few architects practising today can claim not to have been influenced by his thinking and ideas, notably around issues of context and culture, as articulated in his seminal and still powerfully contemporary text 'Towards a Critical Regionalism' (1983). Other works such as Studies in Tectonic Culture (1995) and the many editions of Modern Architecture: A Critical History have driven the ways that we see, think about and understand modern architecture and its role in society.
