The Elements of Modern Architecture

Category: Tag:

The world’s best buildings created from 1950 to the present, dissected and analysed through specially commissioned freehand drawings

Antony Radford, Srivastava and Selen Morkoç

‘This ambitious publication, now revised and expanded, dissects fifty-five modern masterpieces through specially commissioned freehand drawings that reveal the principles and details of what makes a building meaningful and enduring. Covering six continents, and ranging from a 1955 residence in India to a 2015 opera house in China, influential buildings of the past seven decades are analysed through detailed consideration of their key characteristics – site and surroundings, space and massing, programme and circulation, fenestration and use of natural light – to give an insight into how each design works as a cohesive whole. Appealing to architects, students and everyone who appreciates great buildings, The Elements of Modern Architecture is an essential reference and inspiration for generations to come’.
