The Oral History of Modern Architecture opens with an introduction to the modern movement. We then hear the architects themselves as they discuss the impact of technology, social concerns, and art on modern architecture, and reveal the buildings and architects that most influenced them. Next are in-depth selections from the interviews with Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn, Philip Johnson, Oscar Niemeyer, Jose Luis Sert, and I.M. Pei. In the closing chapter, the architects speculate about the future of modern architecture. Biographies, a time chart, a bibliography, and a visitor’s guide to more than 150 of the sites pictured and discussed complete the volume. On the compact disc, history comes alive as 16 of the most renowned modern masters express the ideas and ideals behind their works, which belong to one of the most significant movements in the history of architecture.
