REVIEWED Stephanie Matheson
This edition brings Taschen’s classic title up to date with more photos and new insights on recent trends. It’s worth its weight in gold, and at 608 A4 pages that is – well – a lot!
Chapters are organised chronologically, and there is also a biographical appendix that provides a good overview of the century’s greatest architects. The book takes you from the industrial age through to modern days – covering commercial and domestic buildings around the globe, including many well-known structures such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Chrysler Building in New York.
Published by Taschen and distributed in New Zealand by New Holland Publishers.
