sinopsis

This unique building-per-year survey of a century of great architecture offers a superb introduction to the best existing structures built each year from 1916 to 2015 around the globe?and an irresistible must-see list for architecture enthusiasts everywhere. The founder of the blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, John Hill, is obsessed with his subject and determined to expose his fellow citizens to the glorious structures that shape our environment. In this beautifully designed compendium Hill presents his selection of the most significant building to be built each year from 1916 to 2015. Each two-page spread includes one or two large color photos and text that explains the importance of each structure. Starting with H. P. Berlage’s Holland House in London and closing with Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s newly completed Broad museum in Los Angeles, Hill has combed the globe for iconic buildings. Notable inclusions are Helsinki Railroad Station; the Solimar Building in Cuba; Le Corbusier’s Mill Owners’ Association building in Ahmadabad, India; Habitat 67, a housing complex in Montreal; and Tadao Ando’s Church of the Light in Osaka, Japan. What makes this collection so extraordinary is Hill’s criteria for the buildings included: each must be able to be seen, approached, or explored by the average person. An introductory essay and a timeline that highlights important architectural events round out this engrossing survey that demonstrates the underlying themes and developments in the world of architecture today.
