t compiles some sixteen comparative analyses of canonical modern buildings ranging from exhibition pavilions and private houses to office buildings and various kinds of public institutions.

The buildings are compared in terms of their hierarchical spatial order, circulation structure and referential details. The analyses are organized so as to show what is similar and different between two paired types, thus revealing how modern tradition has been diversely inflected.

Richly illustrated, A Genealogy of Modern Architecture is a new standard work in architectural education, tracing the development of twentieth-century architecture from 1924 to 2000.
