Description

A History of Western Architecture

In his highly acclaimed reference work David Watkin traces the history of western architecture from the earliest times to the 21st century. Adopting an approach that sees architectural history as a continuous narrative, the author emphasizes the ongoing vitality of the Classical language of architecture, underlining the continuity between, for example, the work ofIctinus in 5th-century BC Athens and that of McKim, Mead and White in 20th-century New York.
