Volume 1 is:


This two-volume set is the most thorough survey of architecture, interiors, furniture, and the decorative arts from the beginning of recorded history to the present.

It is the most complete, integrated, and interdisciplinary reference for:


• the built environment • interior design • color

• exterior architectural features • interior architectural features • lighting

• space planning • interior surface treatments • textiles

• design details • furniture • decorative accessories


The unique scope allows comparison in all areas of the built environment through the centuries to illustrate historical, social, cultural, and stylistic influences. Narrative and graphics interweave design analysis with architectural and design history.


  • The text is divided into various categories that address Historical and Social developments, Concepts, Design Characteristics, Architecture, Interiors, and Furnishings and Decorative Arts.
  • Information in each chapter offers specifics on Important Buildings and Interiors, Important Treatises, Design Practitioners, and descriptive spotlights of numerous buildings, interiors, and furniture to assist in additional study.
  • Graphic material features a wide diversity of over 3000 illustrations, many well known and some less common.
  • Color photographs throughout the book expand the visual resources required for period study.
  • Design diagramming highlights major design features allowing the reader to make visual connections between the content.
  • Later Interpretations of stylistic illustrations provide a new dimension for the study of design history. > An extensive Glossary, Bibliography, and Index offer flexibility and ease of use.
  • A comprehensive CD containing many of the illustrations in the book is available.
