Truly far-ranging – both conceptually and geographically – The Future of Architecture Since 1889   is a rich, compelling history that may well influence future thinking about this period for years to come. Encompassing both well-known masters and previously neglected but significant architects, this book also reflects Jean-Louis Cohen’s deep knowledge architecture across the globe, and in places such Eastern Europe and colonial Africa and South America that have rarely been included in histories of this period.

This comprehensive history is richly illustrated not only with buildings, projects and plans, but also with publications, portraits, paintings, diagrams, film stills, and exhibitions, showing the immense diversity of architectural thought and production throughout the twentieth century.
