Description

The career and built works of this enigmatic and fascinating architect are carefully charted from his early work on housing design and high-rise offices in Berlin to his later and most famous work in Chicago, Detroit, Montreal and New York. Original illustrations from the architect's archives complement the excellent text.

Spon's ARCHITECTURE COLLECTION presents the work of historic and contemporary masters of architecture in clear well-illustrated text, accessible to non-specialists. This appealing series of monographs, now available in English, is launched by books on two great historic figures of the century, Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe and two award-winning contemporary architects, Sir Norman Foster and Alvaro Siza.
