A Genealogy of Modern Architecture

Kenneth Frampton

A Genealogy of Moderns Architecture is a reference work on modern architecture by Kenneth Frampton, one of today’s leading architectural theorists.
Conceived as a genealogy of twentieth century architecture from 1924 to 2007, it presents fourteen comparative analyses of canonical modern buildings, ranging from exhibition pavilions and private houses to office buildings and public institutions. The paired buildings are compared in terms of their hierarchical spatial order, circulation structure, and referential details, revealing how modern tradition has been diversely inflected.

Richly illustrated, A Genealogy of Modern Architecture is a new standard work in architectural education.
