This book takes a bird’s-eye view of architecture in time, and explores the different ways architects have responded to civilizations, giving them the buildings and cities they deserved.

Concisely and clearly written for a general audience, the book takes us through the world of the ancients, through the Renaissance, and into the Modern Age via the intricate fascination with the Baroque.
