    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    This unique building-per-year survey of a century of great architecture offers a superb introduction to the best existing structures built each year from 1916 to 2015 around the globe—and an irresistible must-see list for architecture enthusiasts everywhere.

    The founder of the blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, John Hill, is obsessed with his subject and determined to expose his fellow citizens to the glorious structures that shape our environment. In this beautifully designed compendium Hill presents his selection of the most significant building to be built each year from 1916 to 2015. Each two-page spread includes one or two large color photos and text that explains the importance of each structure. Starting with H. P. Berlage’s Holland House in London and closing with Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s newly completed Broad museum in Los Angeles, Hill has combed the globe for iconic buildings. Notable inclusions are Helsinki Railroad Station; the Solimar Building in Cuba; Le Corbusier’s Mill Owners' Association building in Ahmadabad, India; Habitat 67, a housing complex in Montreal; and Tadao Ando's Church of the Light in Osaka, Japan. What makes this collection so extraordinary is Hill's criteria for the buildings included: each must be able to be seen, approached, or explored by the average person. An introductory essay and a timeline that highlights important architectural events round out this engrossing survey that demonstrates the underlying themes and developments in the world of architecture today.

    Publishing status: JULY 2016 NEW RELEASE

    This unique visual history documents in pictures the most exciting and dynamic period of architecture: from the early 20th century to the present day, covering all the key movements, styles and architects, together with many lesser known but important names and buildings.

    Through archival and full-color photography, plans and architectural drawings, the book illustrates the changing nature of architecture and its expansion during this period from the early developments of concrete and the steel frame, through national styles of architecture and the eruption of Modernism to the influence of science and engineering in the post-war period, the provocative arguments of Postmodernism in the 1980s, right up to today's superstars and global brands.

    Written by an expert on 20th-century architecture, 100 Years of Architecture has the authority to serve both architecture students and professionals, but packed with over 300 images, it will also appeal to the general reader.

    A study of detail in contemporary world architecture in photographs and drawings.

    1000 Architectural Details is a reference catalog to buildings' structural features. In photography and drawings (floors, elevations, cross-sections, axonometrics and sketches), the authors discuss how function meets form to create outstanding architecture and design. The material has been selected for its capacity to inspire and propose innovative ideas on how to approach the design or construction of different parts of a project.

    Divided into 15 thematic chapters, the details are numbered from one to a thousand, and each is illustrated with a close-up photograph or drawing and explained in a concise caption. The authors begin with primary structural elements, such as columns and beams, and a section on materials and their properties covers the finishings commonly used, such as concrete and steel.

    The authors also discuss essential installed elements, such as facades, roofs and insulation, as well as the many interior and exterior features that, while functional, allow the most latitude in decoration. These can include floors, lighting, color, storage, doors and landscaping. "Green building" is covered in chapters on sustainable materials, recycling and prefabricated materials.

    This is a fascinating volume packed with comprehensive illustrations and the most current expert information. Professionals, do-it-yourselfers and anyone with an interest in design will find it eminently practical.
