This text traces developments in church building through the changes in architecture and theology in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and illustrates the broad spectrum of modern ecclesiastical architecture which has emerged as the synthesis of the pluralism which defined the turn of the century and the purity and clarity of the Modern Movement. Among the many architects featured are Auguste Perret, Rudolf Schwarz, Otto Bartning, Antoni Gaudi, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Tadao Ando, Siren Architects, Philip Johnson, Mario Botta and Imre Makovecz. This is the fourth title in the "Builders" series. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

The last decade has seen the emergence of a whole new generation of church designs. Covering buildings across the world, Contemporary Church Architecture aims to appeal not only to architects and clergy involved directly in ecclesiastical architecture but also other practitioners and those with a broader interest in cutting-edge design. This book covers the development of contemporary church design by looking at how the rational and the sacred can be reconciled and can inform one another. It also outlines the main trends and approaches: the conflict between self-expression and expression of the sacred, between sculptural signification and functionalism. Beautifully illustrated with around 350 photographs. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
