In this book, Sheldon Cheney has made the first world survey of modern architecture as it has emerged during the last forty years. "Except for a few pictures introduced for purposes of contrast," writes Mr. Cheney, "you will find in all the 300 illustrations in this book not a single Greek column or Gothic buttress or Ramesque portal or English-Palladian window. " For Mr. Cheney deals only with the architecture which has "grown organically out of the machine-age materials and methods of structure, out of modern needs and modern living, out of honest aesthetics, free of stylistic trappings."
