Description - Twentieth-century Architecture by Dennis P. Doordan

In this exciting new survey of 20th-century architecture, Dennis Doordan selects significant moments from modern architecture and unravels the political, social, and technological strands that make up its history. Identifying key themes such as the nature of domestic space, the design of places of work (factories and offices) and recreation (cinema and sports), the author not only describes buildings but also includes the evolution of design tools and their impact on architectural design. Doordan provides an account of the multiple perceptions of the present and future as seen by 20th-century architects ranging from well-known names such as Le Corbusier, Norman Foster and Frank Lloyd Wright to lesser-known architects such as Geoffrey Bawa, Zaha Hadid, and Alison and Peter Smithson.
