A Concise History of Western Architecture

Harcourt, Brace Jovanovich | 1984 | ISBN: 0500200874 | English | 364 pages | PDF | 66.7 MB

Beginning with ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, the author shows how buildings, both in form and structure, have always expressed the qualities and aspirations of the cultures from which they sprang. The masterpieces of the Middle Ages-Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic-were ecclesiastical, embodying a deeply religious outlook on life. From the Renaissance onwards, architecture began increasingly to serve secular functions, with the building of great palaces and mansions and the advent, in time, of town-planning schemes.
