Antiquity: Origins - Classicism and the New Rome

Antiquity: Origins - Classicism and the New Rome


Tadgell, Christopher

Cl. New York, 2007

Book ID: 73822

The first in a new series of five books describing and illustrating the seminal architectural traditions of the world, Antiquity traces architectural history from its very beginnings until the time when the traditions that shape todays environments began to flourish. More than a catalogue of buildings, in this work Tadgell provides their political, technological, social and cultural contexts and explores architecture, not only as the development of form and space but as an expression of the civilization within which it evolves.

867 pp., 1,200 color photos, 400 line drawings.
