Phaidon’s Mid-Century Modern Architecture Guide

This handbook – the first ever to focus on the architectural wonders of the West Coast of the USA – provides visitors with an expertly curated list of 250 must-see destinations. Discover the most celebrated Modernist buildings, as well as hidden gems and virtually unknown examples – from the iconic Case Study houses to the glamour of Palm Springs’ spectacular Modern desert structures. Much more than a travel guide, this book is a compelling record of one of the USA’s most important architectural movements at a time when Mid-Century style has never been more popular. First-hand descriptions and colour photography transport readers into an era of unparalleled style, glamour, and optimism.
A must-have guide to one of the most fertile regions for the development of Mid-Century Modern architecture
