Oral History of Modern Architecture: Interviews with the Greatest Architects of the Twentieth Century
NOW IN PAPERBACK "Quite the most accessible and striking book on architecture I've ever encountered," raved Keith Archer in the North London News after John Peter's oral history appeared in hardcover in 1994. Now this unprecedented work is available in paperback-and it remains the only book of its kind. No other book offers extensive interviews with more than 60 of the master builders of modern times, and no other book comes packaged with a full-length compact disc, which lets us hear, in their own voices, renowned architects from Frank Lloyd Wright to I. M. Pei talking about the ideas and ideals behind their works. Complete with 200 photographs, plans, drawings, and models of the landmarks of modern architecture, this fascinating volume, says The Art Book, is "a splendid addition . . . it should be in any good architectural library." Includes 72-minute audio CD. 200 black-and-white photographs, plans, and drawings, 9 x 111_4" JOHN PETER (1917-1998) was the modern living editor at Look and LIFE magazines and a radio and television reporter for CBS and NBC. For many years he was head of his own publications consulting firm in New York City, with clients in the United States and Europe.
