Book by Hitchcock Henry Russell Scully Vincent Joseph

Reseña del editor:

Originally published in 1929, this book demonstrates the architecture of the 1920s as the product of over a century of architectural development, despite the visual evidence that seemed to indicate that it had made a radical break with the past. Modern Architecture crystallised the history and theories behind the international style for an American audience. Hitchcock was only 27 at the time, and Modern Architecture was his first book; yet it would substantially reshape the way subsequent generations would view modern architecture and its history. Furthermore, Modern Architecture is the book that would establish Henry-Russell Hitchcock as a pre-eminent American historian of modern architecture.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
