Taschen is known for producing high quality art books and this is no exception: Barbara Lamprecht's texts are insightful, and the quality of the photography is simply amazing. This book has many a great photo by Julius Shulman, and shows some of the greatest examples of modernist architecture in the USA. A must for any architecture lover and a great introduction to the oeuvre of the Neutra company.

Considering the cost of many architecture and design books, these Basic Architecture books from Taschen are a perfect introduction at a low price.
Beautiful pictures, clear text, and covering a variety of the architect's works.
I hope that Taschen will focus on some UK architects for future books; Rogers, Chipperfield or Foster ?
