Description

Space shapers: An encyclopedia of modern architecture The architecture encyclopedia that puts the architects themselves in the spotlight. With more than 270 entries, this indispensable overview, now in our popular Klotz format, covers key players from the 19th to 21st century. Each architect entry features a portrait and short biography as well as a description of important works, historical context, and general approach. The book's A to Z entries also cover groups, movements, and styles to position these leading individual architects within broader building trends across time and geography. With illustrations including some of the best architectural photography of the modern era, this is a comprehensive resource for any architecture professional, student or devotee, providing an invaluable overview of the shaping of modern space.
