    Book synopsis: The Routledge Companion to Contemporary Architectural History features twenty-nine chapters written by leading architectural historians that define and shape future research, practice, and education. In the past few decades, the study of architecture has increasingly become a highly diverse field. This collection charts its contested territories by offering a comprehensive and provocative knowledge report of contemporary architectural history, practice, and research. It provides an essential map for navigating the complex currents of contemporary architecture. Divided into three parts – Histories, Interrogations, and Innovations – this book emphasizes diversity, criticality, and creativity in architectural interventions to meet challenges and enact changes in different parts of the world through featured exemplars. The diverse contributions recognize multiple spatial rationalities and incorporate cross-cultural frameworks in studying the competing claims of architectural modernity. Illustrated with over 125 black and white images, this volume offers scholars, students and practitioners an evaluation of current and emerging approaches to architecture.
