Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 000724746X, Paperback)

Designed for novices to the field, this is a complete and informative introduction to the study of architecture. The primary characteristics of the main architectural styles are all addressed as are the differences between them. Images of a variety of public and private buildings—including homes, museums, and monuments—are included to illustrate the key traits of various schools. Additionally, the general history of architecture is covered and an educational “Thinking Architecturally” section is provided. Easy-to-read and filled with plenty of intriguing facts, this is your guide to understanding the buildings that surround you everyday.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:06:18 -0400)

Starting with the basics of analysing the home, then moving onto looking at public buildings and larger and more well-known structures, the author shows the reader how features are inherited and copied, as well as adapted with each new generation.
