Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This book of 20th-century domestic ar chitecture has been constructed around a single premise: that the plan of a building is the most accurate mea surement of changes in architectural thought from the Beaux Arts to the present. This theory is put to the acid test in the 48 examples that Dunster has selected. While Dunster's choice of examples is impeccableincluding many interesting houses by lesser- known architectsthe plans have all been redrawn without indication of scale and with confusing numerical keys to rooms that differ from drawing to drawing. The few photographs that are provided are of uneven quality. The result is that many basic ques tionsthose of volume, scale, materi al, structure, and detailare left unan swered, and the reader is left with tantalizing but incomplete records of 48 key buildings of the 20th century. For architectural libraries primarily. H. Ward Jandl, National Park Svce., Washington, D.C.
