Story of Architecture (2ND 97 Edition)by Patrick J. Nuttgens
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Throughout history the creation and shaping of the built environment has been at the forefront of human endeavor. The Story of Architecture is the account of how men and women of ingenuity and imagination have taken the most elementary of human needs and transformed them into some of the greatest manifestations of the human civilization. Each chapter charts a stage in the development of architecture, thus dividing the book into natural study units, and the illustrations and plans are closely keyed to the text.<P>For this new edition, the author has revised and updated the whole text and bibliography, and has greatly expanded the treatment of the modern and contemporary periods. The book has been completely redesigned, with more than 400 illustrations, half of them in colour. Valuable new features are maps, time charts and architects' biographies.
An illustrated history of world architecture, an ideal background reader for anyone wanting to understand the world's architectural heritage, from the earliest cities of the ancient Middle East to contemporary developments.
