This comprehensive pocket guide to world architectural styles throughout history serves as an introduction to all periods and styles and as a tourists' companion for identifying and enjoying buildings in their settings. "The Complete Architecture Handbook" provides invaluable coverage of the world's architectural styles and has become a classic of its kind. Structured chronologically from the first ancient civilizations to the present day, the late distinguished architectural historian, Patrick Nuttgens, considers established historical styles, such as the Romanesque and Gothic eras, and further sub-categorizes the style into territory in order to describe different regional accents. Modern architecture authority, Richard Weston, brings the story up to date in this fully revised edition. Illustrated extensively throughout with clear, detailed plans, sections, and cutaway drawings, this book presents an invaluable resource for students, architects, and tourists alike.
