Why You Can Build It Like That examines buildings from the past half century or so that pushed the boundries of what was architecturally acceptable when they were built. 100 striking international examples of modern architecture are categorized into thematic chapters that reflect form as well as society. Zukowsky explores the history of these buildings and their makers, presenting relevant biographical factors and socio-cultural influences that impacted on distinctive designs. The book includes works of heroic early modernist architects such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright, alongside architectural firm such as Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. It also features mavericks of the past and present - Bruce Goff, Shin Takamatsu and Shigeru Ban. Readers will find out why all the featured buildings look the way they do and why they were created.

This paperback contains 224 pages.
