About the Author

Martino Stierli is Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art.


"An impressive and excellent work of scholarship."-Peter Sealy, JSAH

"Through words, and 157 wonderfully curated images, Stierli describes the arrival of montage as a (and possibly the) dominant shaper of modernity, deftly charting its rise and multiple appearances through the avant-garde, architecture and cinema."-Simon von Wolkenstein, Architectural Theory Review

"With elegant prose and excellent illustrations, Stierli reconciles erudition and clarity to explain the confluence of architecture, photography, film, and the visual arts in the crucible of modernity"- Luis Fernandez-Galiano, Arquitectura Viva

Finalist for the 2019 Modernist Studies Association Book Prize

Listed on Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles List for 2019

"A stunning, complex reassessment of architectural modernism, recast in its very essence through lucid discussions of significant relationships like Mies van der Rohe and Dada, and Eisenstein and Constructivism."-Jean-Louis Cohen, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

"Montage and the Metropolis is a substantial achievement. The author provides an elegant and compelling history of architectural montage in modernism, with a provocative extension to the postmodern."-Claire Zimmerman, author of Photographic Architecture in the Twentieth Century

"Montage and the Metropolis is a landmark contribution to our understanding of how modern architecture emerged in dialogue with film, photography, and the visual arts."-Edward Dimendberg, author of Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Architecture after Images
