Editorial Reviews

Review

“[W]ell-designed, knowledgeable work which will be valuable in architecture courses and for students and professionals in architecture.” (Book News)

“[W]orthwhile tool for developers and architects as they endeavor to understand the underpinnings of urban housing and look towards the future generations of urban projects. The premise and format of Key Urban Housing of the Twentieth Century is simple yet noteworthy, and the execution is compelling.” (Howard Kozloff, Director of Operations in New York for Hart Howerton)

This book reveals the beautiful concepts of modern moviment, richly illustrated. The disappointment is that it must have the double of the amount of pages to have more and more photos of the works…

Wow! This is an excellent and substandtive review of multifamily housing projects. Unlike many architecture books, which simply include a few random details along with the photos, this is a serious reference work. Each project is presented in a consistent fashion with its key features explained. Graphics are consistent between projects. If that weren't enough, it also includes a CD with all the referenced drawings in DWG and EPS formats. This is a must for any architect interested in multifamily housing.

This book and others in the series and great references. Having all of thes design projects in one volume AND the digital files make it invaluable as a resource and an excellent teaching tool.
