Ornament is Crime: Modernist Architecture


A new work from Phaidon—written by Albert Hill and Matt Gibberd, founding directors of The Modern House—celebrates and reappraises the value of modernist architecture and its place in global architectural movements. The stunning hardcover pairs text from resonant, related figures with black-and-white photographs of prime examples of the style. More than a guide, this book demonstrates why modernism remains relevant to us today—both as makers and observers.
