International Style: Modernist Architecture from 1925 to 1965, a vintage paperback coffee table book discussing modern architecture and design between years 1925 and 1965. By Hasan-Uddin Khan, published in 2001. 1st edition, 237 pages.
"The years from 1925 to 1965 were marked by an optimistic belief that the new technologies of industrialization, spread by applying rational ideas to architecture and urbanism, would produce a qualitatively better world. This "Project of Modernity" was concerned with social agenda as well as form, an aspect that is now sometimes forgotten. The expressions of modern architecture were characterized by a number of different twentieth-century movements, dominated by the International Style."
