A history of architecture driven by the ideas behind the buildings defining architectural styles from the Greeks to the present with an intellectual flair. The 15 contributing historians and architects develop the political themes of Versailles, the power and glory of medieval architecture, the industrial revolution and Hegelian philosophy in relation to modern architecture, and specific studies of Frank Lloyd Wright, Aldo Rossi, and Rob Krier. Avoiding the encyclopedic approach, the volume excavates deeper into the foundations of architectural history.
