Overview

The Phaidon Atlas of 20th Century World Architecture portrays, for the first time in one volume, an overview of the finest built architecture from around the world completed between 1900 and 1999. The unprecedented global scope of this collection of over 750 key buildings juxtaposes architectural icons with regional masterpieces. Divided into six world regions, the collection is the result of a rigorous selection process and the input of more than 150 specialists from around the world. Each building is fully illustrated and described by a short text. In addition, a mass of useful information is provided. This includes details of architects' practices and extensive indexes. Comprehensive world data illustrates the changing economic and political contexts of architectural production throughout the century.

The new Phaidon Press publication of 20th Century World Architecture documents the extraordinary quality and quantity of architecture produced during the last century.

Richard Meier Beautifully detailed and well organised Richard Rogers Phaidon's colossal 20th Century World Architecture is a real tour de force. While the sheer volume of information is breathtaking, what impresses me most is the fascinating view of architecture in the 20th century created by the breadth of the projects and their contexts .
