This highly acclaimed reference work traces the history of Western architecture from its earliest days in Mesopotamia and Egypt to the dramatic impact of computer-aided design at the beginning of this century. Looking at architectural history as a living continuum rather than a museum of neatly labeled styles, the author emphasizes the vitality of the Classical language of architecture. Twenty pages of text and twenty-five new pictures have been added to bring this new edition of an authoritative classic completely up to date.
