by Aaron Britt On November 1st, Phaidon debuted 20th Century World Architecture: The Phaidon Atlas. It's a huge book with some 750 works of last century's architecture that range from homes to civic structures to tall towers, from Morocco to New Zealand to Puerto Rico. The usual suspects are out in force—Corbu, Mies, Frank Lloyd Wright—but they're joined by undersung regional architects and a healthy dollop of contemporary designers working at century's end. We had a chat with Phaidon's editorial director Emilia Perragni about how the tome came together, why it's organized like an atlas, and why it's so monstrously huge.
