Format: Hardcover
This exclusively black & white and copiously illustrated hardcover survey of 38 major works from 1939 to 1959 was published in 1962 by George Braziller in English on only 128 pages. The introductory part on 40 pages is followed by 64 pages with only 134 illustrations - mainly architectural photos, as well as hard line plans, sections, models, and sketches. Several pages at the end of book contain a biography, writings, list of works, bibliography, etc. The photos are of good quality, well balanced, crisp, and legible. Like all from the virtually identical Masters of World Architecture series, it is solid among architectural monographs, while having only slightly bigger and sharper photos than in the comparable Studio Paperback series published by Birkhäuser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zürich)/18740* (London), and slightly smaller than in the the Library of Contemporary Architects/Masters of Modern Architecture series.
