Other Traditions Of Modern Architecture

Author(s): Colin St.John Wilson

theory and history | Black Dog

Sets out to examine the underlying themes of Modern European architecture, assessing their impact, influence, and continuing development. This book argues for a continuing tradition, an 'uncompleted project', sustained against the rigidifying orthodoxy, the white walls, functionalism and blank boxes of CIAM, by a 'resistance movement'.
