Descrizione libro London: Batsford, 1991. Condizione libro: Sehr gut. 170 S. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - The nineteenth century presented architects with great challenges and opportunities: new materials and building techniques introduced in the industrial revolution prepared the ground for radical changes in the twentieth century. Doreen Yarwood describes these developments within present-day Europe and reveals the richness and diversity of the architectural styles of each country throughout the period. Though primarily eclectic, the nineteenth century produced a number of architectural successes -Haussmann 's grandiose reshaping of Paris, Engel's classical Helsinki, the Gothic revivalism of the rebuilt Palace of Westminster. Art Nouveau was the first movement to break with this eclecticism but it still drew its inspiration from the past. The modern movement developed in some countries between the wars utilising concrete, steel and glass for strength and simplicity. Le Corbusier, Gropius and others used this approach to great effect; in the 1950s it became a mass movement-part of the effort to reconstruct a ruined Europe quickly and cheaply. High-rise structures enjoyed a brief vogue. In the 1970s there were increasing calls for an architecture reunited with its environment: leading to the safety of classicism or light-hearted eclecticism. Doreen Yarwood surveys all European architecture, including Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, having visited all the buildings described and depicted. The lucid text and generous illustrations - drawn from her photographs taken in situ - and photographic coverage provide a vivid record of the complexities of architecture during the last two centuries.
