Building in France, building in iron, building in ferroconcrete

This classic of twentieth-century architectural literature, now available in English for the first time, presents Sigfried Giedion's provocative vision of architecture in the industrial era and his response to technological advances in the production of key building materials. Giedion shows how iron and reinforced concrete allowed the construction of buildings of unprecedented size and openness in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Mechanization Takes Command

First published in 1948, Mechanization Takes Command is an examination of mechanization and its effects on everyday life. A monumental figure in the field of architectural history, Sigfried Giedion traces the evolution and resulting philosophical implications of such disparate innovations as the slaughterhouse, the Yale lock, the assembly line, tractors, ovens, and “comfort” as defined by advancements in furniture design. A groundbreaking text when originally published, Giedion's pioneering work remains an important contribution to architecture, philosophy, and technology studies.
