His monograph on Alvar Aalto won the 1995 Sir Banister Fletcher while Modernism received the International Book Award of the American Institute of Architects. He is now Professor of Architecture at Cardiff University and runs a studio exploring design applications of a unique database of 'earth images' captured from minerals and rocks.

The book is well written giving the impression of having a conversation with the author rather than just simply reading another textbook. Nice, consistent layout which makes it easy to get into the rhythm of going through the book.

Enjoy Paging through this Book 14 Feb. 2011
By K. Kaur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Book features 114 buildings with a description written by an architect and a facing page of plan, section, elevation. Drawing pages include a scale and north arrow. Some of these buildings I mostly know from their elevations or a color photo. It was interesting to see the plans and sections. Easy to page through

An essential buy for any college-level collection strong in architecture 19 Oct. 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The second updated edition of Key Buildings of the 20th Century: Plans, Sections and Elevations remains an essential buy for any college-level collection strong in architecture. It comes packed with hundreds of architectural drawings and photos, includes classic works by many renowned architects, and offers new entries covering a range of building types. Students of architecture also receive a free CD-ROM offering digital files of all drawings featured in the book. It comes from an architect who offers accurate scale plans: all of which have been specially commissioned for this book, making this an exceptional, ongoing recommendation.
