Docomomo International is proud to have collaborated on the following book:

"The twentieth century was a remarkable period in architectural history. Rivaling the transformative achievements of ancient Greece, the Gothic period or the Renaissance, the twentieth century galvanized radical developments in building technology, architectural theory, and space that paralleled global revolutions in politics, economics, and social values. Knowledge of the twentieth century´s accomplishments is fundamentally critical for all students of architecture.

More than 50 internationally renowned architects were asked to list the top 100 twentieth century buildings they would teach to architecture students. The contributors were encouraged to select built projects where formal, spatial, technological, and organizational concepts responded to dynamic historical, cultural, social, and political circumstances. The capacity of these buildings to resist, adapt, and invent new typologies solidifies their timeless relevance to future challenges.

The result is a master list of the top 100 ´must-know´ built works of architecture designed and completed between 1900 and 2000."
