A good pictorial survey of modern architecture in Northern and Central Europe, England and the United States. It is noticeable that although by 1927 modern movement architectural styles were dominant in Germany and France, and spreading to other European countries, Wattjes’s illustrations of recent English architecture are dominated by the vernacular domestic work of architects such as Clough Williams-Ellis, Oliver Hill and Oswald P.Milne.
