€39.00

Emerging in the mid-20th century in the United States, mainly in places such as Chicago, New York, and California, modern architecture soon matured and spread around the world, enabled by advances in industrial technology and the mass production of unitised and lightweight building materials. The many projects featured in this special issue are essential for critically discussing the architecture, cities, and urban environment of today and the future. Among them are the Guggenheim Museum (Frank Lloyd Wright), Chase Manhattan Bank (SOM), Salk Institute (Louis Kahn), Smith House (Richard Meier), Glass House (Philip Johnson), and Dulles International Airport (Eero Saarinen).
