Book Description:

This landmark anthology surveys the major developments and trends in architecture from Vitruvius to Gottfried Semper. It is the first volume to make available in one place the major statements in English, German, French, and Italian that constructed architecture as a field. In charting the progress of architecture from its earliest days until the second half of the nineteenth century, Mallgrave brings together over 200 classic essays in the field. These cover Classicism, the Gothic period, Neoclassicism, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and major themes including industry, ornament, style, and tectonics. Architectural Theory: An Anthology from Vitruvius to 1870 - along with the forthcoming second volume, covering 1870 to 2000 - is an indispensable reference for any student or scholar of architecture. Organized thematically, it features general and section introductions and headnotes to each essay written by a renowned expert on architectural theory.

His l996 book Gottfried Semper: Architect of the Nineteenth Century was awarded the Alice Davis Hitchcock Award by the Society of Architectural Historians.
