Fans of fine architecture will welcome this lavish guide to the great buildings and structures of the modern age. Eight sections cover each architectural movement from 1900 to the present: Arts and Crafts, Classicism, Organic, Modernism, Postmodernism, Robotic, Cities, and Futures. In engaging, jargon-free prose, Jonathan Glancey discusses more than 440 landmark structures regarded as modern classics, including L'Institut du Monde Arab in Paris, the Sydney Opera House, the Swiss Re building in London, and the Parliamentary Library in New Delhi.
