The architecture of the well-tempered environment by Reyner Banham( Book )

76 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reyner Banham was a pioneer in arguing that technology, human needs, and environmental concerns must be considered an integral part of architecture. No historian before him had so systematically explored the impact of environmental engineering on the design of buildings and in the minds of architects. In this revision of his classic work, Banham has added considerable new material on the use of energy, particularly solar energy, in human environments. Included in the new material are discussions of Indian pueblos and solar architecture, the Centre Pompidou and other high-tech buildings, and the environmental wisdom of many current architectural vernaculars."--Back cover
Los Angeles : the architecture of four ecologies by Reyner Banham( Book )

84 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reyner Banham examined the built environment of Los Angeles in a way no architectural historian before him had done, looking with fresh eyes at its manifestations of popular taste and industrial ingenuity, as well as its more traditional modes of residential and commercial building. His construct of "four ecologies" examined the ways Angelenos relate to the beach, the freeways, the flatlands, and the foothills. Banham delighted in this mobile city and identified it as an exemplar of the posturban future." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/ucal042/00064850.html

51 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in 6 languages and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Age of the Masters was the age of an architectural revolution that lasted over fifty years - from Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Glasgow Art School at the beginning of the century to Mies van der Rohe's National Gallery in Berlin at the end of the sixties. While they lived, the Masters comprised some of the most powerful architectural talents the Western world has yet produced, and at least two men of towering genius - Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier. Their aspirations for the future of men, cities, and society may have been thwarted, but the prototypes they created still reflect the light of their creative fervor..." --
