Reviews - What do customers think about Prague 20th Century Architecture?

Handy guide to accessible landmarks of 20th C architecture  Feb 22, 2000
The concise Prague, 20th Century Architecture is easily the best current guide to an architecture that until 1989 was mostly inaccessible to the culture vultures of the heroic period of architecture (the period between the wars, to others). Arranged in geographical order, the entries spiral clockwise from the center of Prague's old and new town (Stare and Nove Mesto). Collected are veritable gems from Art Nouveau (a style that flourished during the Belle Époque is Prague with equal facility as is Paris and Bruxelles), each illustrated with a small photograph, basic information, and its location on a map keyed by numerical order. A summary overview of Prague's development precedes the entries, and these are followed by a useful chronological register, list of architects, and list by functional groups (housing, schools, etc.)
