Published: Berlin, Propylšen,
Description: 608pp, copious b&w photo illustrations and figs + 25 tissue-covered tipped-in colour plates. Bibliography. Gilt decorated boards, gilt decorated leather spine with gilt lettered red leather paste-on spine label and leather corners, 27x20. Front board partially sun-marked, a good copy.
Notes: This under-rated and beautifully designed work is an outstanding 1920s international survey of modern architecture. Still one of the most complete accounts of the early period and with exceptionally fine illustrations. Included are works by Behrens, Taut, Dudok, Mendelsohn, Mies, Oud, Wright etc etc.. Gustav Platz (1881-1947) was himself a significant architect. He worked with Fritz Schumacher in Hamburg, and was Chief Architect of Mannheim, 1923-32.
