Who Built That? Modern Houses, by Didier Cornille, is a fantastic intro to some of the most significant architects of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: Gerrit Rietveld, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles & Ray Eames, Mies Van Der Rohe, Jean Prouvé, Frank Gehry, Shigeru Ban, Rem Koolhaas and Sara Wiggelsworth & Jeremy Till. The design of the book evokes a sense of modernity with its spare and minimalist illustrations and layout. Published by Princeton Architectural Press.
We have a short list of architectural books that we want to buy eventually, but does anyone have any favorites to share?
