Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In 1923 German architect Behne wrote this perceptive account of modern architecture, precisely in its birthplace at the time it was born. Behne was an enthusiastic critic and no blind advocate of the new style. Consequently, his account conveys all the richness and complexity of the movement at the very moment it precipitated into what became known, rather blandly, as The International Style. Robinson has produced a skillful translation, making this work readily available in English for the first time; Rosemarie Haag Bletter's (art history and modern German studies, CUNY) introduction contextualizes the text. This scholarly work is part of the Getty Institute's publication program devoted to original texts and documents in the field of architecture, and it belongs in all academic architecture collections.?Peter Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
