Full Description

Folio. 2 vols. 340pp ; 400pp ; each with many text ills. Publisher’s cloth, preserved in printed slipcase. Roderick Gradidge’s review copy, with relevant letter to publisher & typewritten review.

A detailed overview of forty-eight major architectural competitions held around the world from 1792 onwards, with trilingual text and colour reproductions of the original winning designs as well as some of the rejects and honourable mentions. The second volume, featuring competitions held in the second half of the twentieth century, is especially useful.
