Robert Hughes' classic series about art in the twentieth century. This edition deals with the aspirations and reality of architecture. Utopian visions rarely work practically and Hughes examines the parallel lines of concrete, towering verticals of steel and planes of glass of modernism in the buildings of Le Corbusier, Mies Van der Rohe and Gropius, which he contrasts with the paintings of Mondrian.
