Description
Incisive, jargon-free and a pleasure to read, A Field Guide To American Architecture presents an exceptionally comprehensive view of American architecture from the 1940s to the present. Plentiful photographs and graphic representations, carefully interwoven with succint text and informative captions, make this volume ideal for browsing as well as serious study.Like Carole Rifkind's earlier book, this one investigates buildings by type, taking a fresh vantage point for each--houses, housing projects, public buildings, art museums, churches and synagogues, schools and colleges, tall office buildings, and shopping centers. Encompassing the works of two hundred architects, from the little known to the famous, it builds a diverse and fascinating panorama of recent American architecture.
