The world’s most inspirational buildings—chosen by the most acclaimed architects. What architecture inspires the experts? In conjunction with the Twentieth Century Society, 50 of today’s finest architects choose the buildings that have had the greatest impact on their own work. Through perceptive interviews, architectural journalist Pamela Buxton has created outstanding portraits of the best in modern architecture—including designs by such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Alvar Aalto, as well as lesser-known gems.
Examples include: Richard Rogers (of RHSP) on Maison de Verre (Paris, France) Chris Williamson (of Weston Williamson) on the Eames House by Charles and Ray Eames (Los Angeles, CA) Takero Shimazaki (of T-SA, UK) on Hexenhaus by Alison and Peter Smithson (Bad Karlshafen, Germany) Ted Cullinan (of Cullinan Studio) on Chapel of Notre Dame Du Haut by Le Corbusier (Ronchamp, France) Michael Squire (of Squire & Partners, UK) on Grundtvig’s Church by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint (Copenhagen, Denmark) Jonathan Woolf (of Jonathan Woolf Architects) on Haus Esters and Haus Lange by Mies van der Rohe (Krefeld, Germany)
The Twentieth Century Society is a British charity that campaigns for the preservation of architectural heritage from 1914 onwards. They provide support and advice to architects and planning authorities to protect the best twentieth-century architecture and design, whether through listing or sympathetic development and management.
