Editorial Reviews

"In today's un-grimy cities, black houses are the new black, thanks to a trend that has spread from the insular world of avant-garde architecture into the broader culture." —Globe and Mail"The masters of the architectural tome are back at it again, with Phaidon this time taking on a subject that has long fascinated the aesthetically-minded in all walks of life. Black: Architecture in Monochrome delivers exactly what you'd expect - both from the book's title and the renowned publishing house - taking a sweeping look at over 150 structures built over the course of 1,000 years, examining the use of black in the built world."—Hypebeast.com
