Review:

Although this is not a new book, it is still one of the best introductions to modern architecture available on the market. Infinitely accessible and informative, Charles Jencks is sensible and bodacious in his far-ranging discussions of the architecture of this century. This small paperback, which includes 236 illustrations, is invaluable in its assessment of the history of modern architecture and its frank criticism of the architects of our time, as well as its speculations, predictions, and guidelines for the future of the discipline. This edition includes a special postscript on Late-Modernism and Post-Modernism.
