International clients have long emulated American buildings such as skyscrapers, have followed patterns of American urbanism and have adopted American concepts of form and space for lesiure activities. This unique study examines how North American architecture has been 'transplanted' elsewhere throughout the 20th century. It explains how, why and where American architects, contractors, developers, planners, or building material exporters have marketed architecture overseas. Architectural historians, urban planners, architects and planning professionals will find this book of interest. Postgraduates and researchers in planning history, geography and cultural studies will find this an excellent resource.
