Jean-Louis Cohen is one of the most authoritative historians of twentieth-century architecture and urbanism. He is the Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture at the Institute of Fine Arts of NYU University. An articulate writer, popular lecturer, commentator for the French media, and leader of research teams, Cohen has received many honors and is the author of numerous books and articles about nearly every aspect of how modernization has affected the built environment.
Truly far-ranging -- both conceptually and geographically -- The Future of Architecture Since 1889 is a rich, compelling history that will shape future thinking out this period for years to come. Jean-Louis Cohen, one of today's most distinguished architectural historians and critics, gives an authoritative and compelling account of the twentieth century, tracing an arc from industrialization through computerization, and linking architecture to developments in art, technology, urbanism and critical theory. Encompassing both well-known masters and previously neglected but significant architects, this book also reflects Cohen's deep knowledge of architecture across the globe, and in places such Eastern Europe and colonial Africa and South America that have rarely been included in histories of this period.

It is richly illustrated not only with buildings, projects and plans, but also with publications, portraits, paintings, diagrams, film stills, and exhibitions, showing the immense diversity of architectural thought and production throughout the twentieth century.
