|A specific European architecture has developed from the end of the nineteenth century, when the cities of Europe began to grow explosively.
It is characteristic that in designing their buildings, architects have always tried to give form to the developments that were taking
place in society: elegant, simple Bauhaus buildings for a healthy living environment for all; sturdy Communist buildings as a model for
the toiling workers of the time; and Deconstructivist buildings like the Guggenheim in Bilbao to give expression to today’s confusing and uncertain society. This richly illustrated work provides a great survey of the main developments in European architecture from the end of the nineteenth century to the present.
