    Modern Architecture: Representation & Reality

    By Neil Levine

    In this handsome book, esteemed architectural historian Neil Levine investigates for the first time the complex history of representation, the use and meaning of architectural signifiers from the 18th through the 20th century.

    Using the lens of a continuous theoretical argument, Levine provides a detailed survey and critical analysis of major works by a host of modern architects, including Etienne-Louis Boullee, Nicholas Hawksmoor, Louis Kahn, Henri Labrouste, Augustus Welby Pugin, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, John Soane, Louis Sullivan, Mies van der Rohe, Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

    Levine posits that all modern architects, much like visual artists, have had to grapple with issues of representation in their work. Interweaving influential examples from outside the scope of modern architecture, Levine traces the history of representation in architecture, and in writings on architecture, both within each architect's oeuvre and throughout the centuries discussed. The book features previously unpublished images, many created for this publication, and it addresses a variety of specific cases while offering an original and panoramic view of the history of architecture.

    Beautifully written and accessible, "Modern Architecture" is destined to become a classic
