Description - Architectural Theory by Harry Francis Mallgrave
Architectural Theory: Vitruvius to 1870 is a landmark anthology that surveys the development of the field of architecture from its earliest days to the year 1870. The first truly comprehensive anthology that brings together the classic essays in the field, the volume chronicles the major developments and trends in architecture from Vitruvius to Gottfried Semper. Classicism, Neoclassicism, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Gothic form the backbone of this unprecedented anthology, along with special consideration of major themes such as industry, ornament, style, and tectonics. Bringing together and making available in one place the major statements that have literally constructed architecture as a field - in English, German, French, and Italian - Architectural Theory: Vitruvius to 1870 (along with the forthcoming second volume, covering 1870 to 2000) is an indispensable reference for anyone - student or scholar - involved in the study of architecture.
