An astonishingly diverse element of architecture, the doorway is often the physical focus of a building. Following a similar format to the popular Contemporary Staircases, this book contains a fascinating introductory history of the doorway and over 50 examples by some of the world's most celebrated architects. Contemporary Doorways highlights the inventiveness of recent designs, considering each doorway within its setting, including: private houses, shops, hotels and museums, interiors, offices, and churches.
