|This book is a proceeding from the PhD candidate's conference "Admired as well as Overlooked Beauty" and is centred on the architecture of Historicism, Art Noveau, Early Modernism and Traditionalism, during the period between 1850 and 1925. Contributions are focused on several themes, such as national styles and how nationalism, nationality and political commission affected architecture or to the question of proper style for different functions and the requirements and character of different building types. Contributions also deal with the relationship between Early Modernism and Historicism, with approaches to city planning in the times of defortification, with the phenomenon of villa as a part of an industrial complex, with the attitude to the monuments of Historicism and Art Noveau in the 20th Century, and with the research of the periphery.
