The Elements of Modern Architecture
Aimed at a new generation of architects who take technology for granted but seek to understand the principles of what makes a building meaningful and enduring, The Elements of Modern Architecture features 50 buildings by the best-known and -recognized modern architects.
Constructions by Aalto, Gehry, Le Corbusier, Hadid and many others are represented in illustrations that explore all facets of the building's creation. Starting from its site, each building is analysed through its surroundings, use of natural light, volumes and massing; its programme and circulation; its details, fenestration and ornamentation, taking the reader straight to the heart and mind of the architect.
Targeted at rising students and architects who seek to create architecture that transcends digital tools and techniques, The Elements of Modern Architecture is an essential reference and inspiration for many generations to come.
