From metal-clad houses to skyscrapers, aluminium’s futuristic image became increasingly prominent in American architecture during the 20th century, influencing everything from roadside diners built in the Googie style to later postmodernism. This book features a selection of American and Japanese architectural precedents built during the transitional period from modern to postmodern architecture, depicted in photographs, drawings, illustrations, and even cartoons. Deepening an understanding of these complex trends is an essay by Tomoyuki Gondo, plus interviews and discussions with various experts in the field such as Lloyd Khan, Victor Newlove, and Seng Kuan.
