In 1946, after the second World War the design policy of the company changed, and many contemporary artists were commissioned, including Edward Bawden, Louis Le Brocquy and Graham Sutherland.

Softcover. Condition: Good, with general light shelfwear to covers. Binding sound, no inscriptions. 237pp. Many b/w diagrams.

The paintings of De Stijl artists like Van Doesbury and Mondrian contiuned in theor, beyond the limits of the canvas their architecture sought to abolish the wall as the boundary between inteiror and exterior space. In contrast, each of Le Corbusier's buildings and paintings were a self-contained universe in themselves, held within a clear frame. Mies Van der Rohe fluctuated between the two ideals.

This revision includes the full texts of Part I of the original, on the Las Vegas Strip, and Part II, "Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed", a generalisation from the findings of the first part on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl.The final part of the first edition, on the architectural work of the firm Venturi and Rauch, is not included in the revision.
