For this fourth edition, Kenneth Frampton has added a major new chapter that explores the effects of globalisation on architecture in recent years, the rise of the celebrity architect and how practices worldwide have addressed such issues as sustainability and habitat. The bibliography has also been updated and expanded, making this volume more complete and indispensable than ever.
