With over 280 entries, Modern Architecture A to Z in our Bibliotheca Universalis series offers an invaluable overview of the key figures in the creation of modern space. It presents the pioneering architects of the 19th and 20th centuries with a portrait, a brief biography, and a description of their most important works.

As if it were a tailor-made trip to get to know architecture from all over the world, you will discover the skyscrapers of Manhattan, a Japanese concert hall, Gaudí’s Palau Güell in Barcelona or Lina Bo Bardi’s leisure and sports center in a old factory in São Paulo. You’ll delve into Gio Ponti’s color geometries, Zaha Hadid’s fluid futurism, SANAA’s luminous interiors, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s unique mix of Scottish tradition and elegant Japanism.

The book’s alphabetical entries also cover groups, movements, and styles to place these key architects in time and space within broader architectural trends such as the International Style, Bauhaus, and De Stijl, among many others. With illustrations that include some of the best architectural photography of the modern era, this is a complete reference work for professionals, students, or enthusiasts of architecture.
