Full Description

4to. 223 + (1)pp, many photo ills, some colour. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. Gavin Stamp’s copy, with his booklabel.

Issued to accompany an exhibition held successively at Montreal and at Barcelona in 1995-6. The author offers an interesting discussion of the interrelation between the work of European architects and that of their contemporaries in America, more influential on what was happening on the European continent, even in Soviet Russia, than is customarily supposed.
