By examining the recent practice in architecture that has its roots in early-20th-century ideals of "machines for living", this text demonstrates how four contemporary international architects used technology to advance structural expression to evoke an almost nostalgic image of the machine. The book addresses the fundamental art and craft of building in the post-machine age and traces the evolution of this practice, before discussing the similarities amongst the four architects. A section is devoted to each practice which contains an architect's profile and a general description of all four projects.
