Western Architecture

(0)Review Product

Western Architecture is an original and far-reaching survey of the history of architecture in Europe and North America, from ancient Greece to the present. Ian Sutton focuses both on the technological achievements of architects and on stylistic considerations, and stresses that architecture is both a part of history and an art form in its own right.

Arranged chronologically, Western Architecture is divided into chapters on Classical, Early Christian, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, 19th-century revivalism, International Modernism and Post-Modernism, with each epoch’s most significant architects documented and described. A wide range of examples, both familiar buildings and many others rarely seen outside specialist books, illustrate the text, and space is given to Eastern Europe, previously neglected by architectural historians, as well as ideologically suspect styles such as Stalinist classicism. This is an accessible introduction for students and anyone who wants to learn more about the buildings around them.
