Tells the story of modern architecture through the lives of three men who changed the face of cities in the twentieth century.

Le Corbusier gave to modern design a sure and brilliant sense of form; Mies brought an almost Gothic discipline of structure; and Wright heralded a new and dramatic concept of space and freedom. Through this triple focus, Peter Blake provides a perspective on the entire range of twentieth-century architecture.

Includes photographs and plans. 430p. Index.
