Language of Post-Modern Architect

£35.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book, now in its 6th edition, has become a classic. Written in 1977, it was the first to define Post-Modernism in architecture - an event which led to its subsequent adoption in other fields. Perhaps no other book has had such importance in shaping opinions and practice, and this 6th edition brings the story up to date.;"The Language of Post-Modern Architecture" is unique in combining a theoretical treatment of the architectural language with a record of the Post-Modern movement at 6 different stages in its history; a book which has helped steer the course of this tradition and now, at the very moment of its troubled success, charts a new direction.;In it, the reader will find the key buildings of Robert Venturi, Michael Graves, James Stirling, Hans Hollein, Aldo Rossi, Ed Jones, Charles Moore, Cesar Pelli, Arata Isozaki and many others who have influenced the course of this major architectural movement.
This copy published in 1991 (6th edition) and has some shelf wear - mainly some rubbing wear to corners of the softcover. Otherwise it is in excellent condition with clean pages and clear, bright colour photographs (please see photos).
