Architecture: Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries by Henry-Russell HitchcockThis book examines a period which is far more than a prelude to the age of steel and concrete.

There follows the creation of the modern styles of the era based on traditions of the past, and finally, in the 20th century, Art Nouveau and the modern architects in their generations - Perret, Wright, Gropius, Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and others in many parts of the world.
