RIAI Bookshop - Book of the Week:  A Genealogy of Modern Architecture

Published: Friday, April 08, 2016

Price € 37.00

A Genealogy of Modern Architecture is a reference work on modern architecture by Kenneth Frampton, one of today s leading architectural theorists. Conceived as a genealogy of twentieth century architecture from 1924 to 2000, it presents fourteen comparative analyses of canonical modern buildings, ranging from exhibition pavilions and private houses to office buildings and various kinds of public institutions. The paired buildings are compared in terms of their hierarchical spatial order, circulation structure, and referential details, revealing how modern tradition has been diversely inflected. Richly illustrated, A Genealogy of Modern Architecture is a new standard work in architectural education.

The book is available at the RIAI Bookshop at a cost of € 37.00. Please contact Brona King at bking@riai.ie for more information.
