Casual and serious readers alike will be captivated by this comprehensive survey of the Western world's architecture. Ranging from 2000 B.C. to the 1980s, its chronologically arranged photographs and drawings appear in 105 two-page spreads, each representing a specific era and often covering different regions and countries. Accompanying text comments on architectural details and places the buildings within the historical, artistic, and scientific context of each period.
Clear organization and layout make this unique volume an easy-to-use reference. No previous knowledge of building or architectural history is assumed, and the text is supplemented by an index and glossary. In addition to its practical appeal to architectural historians and students, this wide-ranging visual history will fascinate readers with an interest in architecture, art, and history.
