A thoughtful exploration of modern architectural monuments and memorials Structures built in response to death pose unique architectural challenges-challenges that transcend the physical to encompass symbolism, beliefs, and culture. Monument Builders highlights this rarely discussed yet fascinating building type, exploring the links between different perceptions of death and their expression in architecture over the course of the twentieth century. Sensitive but never somber, it features the work of an impressive international roster of architects as it moves from neo-classicist and modernist treatments of death to holocaust memorials and other difficult projects.
