This highly acclaimed survey of modern architecture and its origins has become a classic since it first appeared in 1980, and has helped to shape architectural practice and discourse worldwide.

For this extensively revised and updated fifth edition, world-renowned historian and academic Kenneth Frampton has added a new section that explores in detail the ongoing modernist tradition in architecture across the globe in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. He examines the varied ways in which architects are not only responding to the geographical, climatic, material, and cultural contexts of their buildings, but also pursuing distinct lines of approach that emphasize topography, morphology, sustainability, materiality, habitat, and civic form. It remains an essential resource for all students of architecture and architectural history.
