‘I am always keen to read anything written by Colin Davies – he presents everything as if he and the reader are having a cheerful conversation about a subject by which they are both fascinated, and he shares his excitement by narrating history in a sequence of dazzling anecdotes – telling of the meetings, the arguments, the ‘eureka-moments’ – which were the foundations of Modern Architecture. He brings the creators’ ideas events to life. In other words – this book is like no other. The amazingly well-researched illustrations are often a revelation – as are all his words.’ Tom Heneghan, Professor of Architecture, Shibaura Institute of Technology, Japan

A New History of Modern Architecture combines a fascinating, thought-provoking and – above all – readable text with over 800 photographs, plans and sections, this exciting new reading of modern architecture is a must for students and architecture enthusiasts alike.

Organised largely as a chronology, chapters necessarily overlap to allow for the discrete examination of key themes including typologies, movements and biographical studies, as well as the impact of evolving technology and country-specific influences.
