This crash course in the history of architecture takes architectural history out of the realm of textbooks and into a world of dynamic design, surveying architecture from Stonehenge to Frank Lloyd Wright and beyond. Page-length essays, sidebars, descriptive captions, and 250 mostly color photos of buildings make it easy for readers to retain information. Discussion encompasses engineering breakthroughs, cultural history, biographical anecdotes, and analysis of corresponding and clashing styles. There are also excerpts from interviews with leading contemporary architects. Includes a glossary. Strickland's articles on art, architecture, and design have appeared in many major publications.
