    Canonical book, for it establishes some of the upcoming moral values of Modern Architecture return Giedion s seminal work first appeared as Charles Eliot Norton Lectures for 1938 1939 belongs to a centenary tradition of Classical Rationalists such as Viollet le Duc or Auguste Choisy, for whom architectural history derives directly from the history of building technology return It is a classical work a must read for anyone interested in Modern Architecture and its early history.

    Rereading this it was the first architecture text I ever read We ll see how it stands up to the intervening 13 years.Mid Read note I forgot how effing boring this is Not bad, just boring Incredibly dry.

    A comprehensive history of modern architecture and the best one to gain an overview of the style.

    I read an earlier edition about ten years ago It was a superb tour of modern architecture The tone is sharp and arrogant An exciting book.
