Description - Elements of Architecture by Pierre von Meiss
This internationally significant book analyses architectural elements, drawing general principles from the prevailing pluralism of architectural approaches. Von Meiss bridges the gap between history and contemporary work by pinpointing the constant factors that exist in all architecture. Elements of Architecture will prove especially useful to modern practitioners who need to make constant reference to buildings of the past. It is also unique in two particular ways: it does not get involved in the ineffectual argument about styles that dominate today's architectural literature; and it is the first recent book to attempt such a synthesis of architectural history and contemporary work.
