Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the haunting grandeur of the Etowah Indian Mounds to the futuristic steel and glass of the Atlanta skyline, The Guide to the Architecture of Georgia spans 500 years and numerous miles to reveal the state's rich architectural heritage. Award-winning architect Tom Spector and free-lance photographer Susan Owings-Spector traveled Georgia's backroads and highways to catalog impressive examples of Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival, Neoclassical, Victorian, and Modern architecture that are open to the public and well worth a visit. The volume supplies all the information necessary to locate, tour, and enjoy these architecturally significant structures. Organized by region and subdivided by county, the guide allows architecture enthusiasts to identify sites of interest quickly. Essays throughout the book describe the rise and fall of architectural styles, and a glossary clarifies more than 100 architectural terms. Whether planning a day trip, a weekend get-away, an extended vacation, or merely a scenic drive through the state, The Guide to the Architecture of Georgia is an ideal companion for touring the state's architectural treasures. The guide features descriptions of more than 300 important structures arranged by region and county; 78 photos and 35 easy-to-follow maps; an entire chapter on the Atlanta area; practical visiting information including addresses, opening times, entrance fees, and handicapped accessibility; a glossary of architectural terms and descriptions of the major architectural periods, from the early American through the Postmodern.
