This inspiring book chronicles the most influential ideas that have shaped architecture. Entertaining and intelligent, it provides a concise history of the subject, and is also a fascinating resource to dip into. Arranged in a broadly chronological order to show the development of architecture, the ideas that comprise the book include innovative and influential concepts, technologies, techniques and movements. Each idea is presented through interesting text and arresting visuals, and explores when the idea first evolved and the subsequent impact it has had up to the present day.
An architect, landscape designer and author, Richard Weston is a Professor at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University. Previous books include the monograph Alvar Aalto, winner of the 1995 Sir Banister Fletcher Prize, and the definitive monograph on the Danish architect JOrn Utzon.
