This book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. The first section provides a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of territories around the world. This book not only reflects the different perspectives of its various authors, but also charts a middle course between the 'aesthetic' histories that examine architecture solely in terms of its formal aspects, and the more 'ideological' histories that subject it to a critique that often skirts the discussion of its formal aspects.Laurent Stalder is Professor in Architectural Theory at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) at the ETH Zurich since 2011. He received his diploma in architecture in 1996 and his PhD in 2002 at the ETH Zurich.
