Divided into sections, this study concentrates on developments in European rationalism during this century, focusing on aspects of rationalism in the 1930s and neo-rationalism from the 1960s to the modern day. It features 36 projects from the beginning of the century to the present. The buildings are chosen in order to reflect the spirit and architecture of the rationalist movement. All projects represented by architects no longer alive have been redrawn to convey their concept and meaning, and care has been taken to set the buildings in their original context.
