Elements of Architecture by Pierre von Meiss

Book Description

This internationally significant book analyzes architectural elements, drawing general principles from the prevailing pluralism of architectural approaches. Von Meiss expertly bridges the gap between history and contemporary work by pinpointing the constant factors that exist in all architecture. A comprehensive analysis of the whole architectural phenomenon, this valuable book will prove especially useful to modern practitioners who need to make constant reference to buildings of the past. Staying away from the ineffectual arguments on styles that dominate today's architectural literature, this is the first recent book to attempt such a synthesis of architectural history and contemporary work. As such, it is unique.
