The origins of the spectacular geometric forms and sparkling surfaces of modern architecture from 1918 to 1939. Individual buildings including both little-known and more familiar examples in Europe and the United States by architects such as Adolf Loos, Walter Gropius, and Le Corbusier are examined within the context of class and social control, luxury and austerity, race and colonialism.
