Informative, readable text and 100 handsome illustrations of magnificent buildings make this book appealing not only to architects and architectural historians, but also to anyone with even a casual interest in architecture and design. It explains in simple, direct terms the ways in which the relationship of exterior and interior elements creates a sense of unity and completeness. Dozens of edifices by Inigo Jones, the Adam Brothers, Sir Christopher Wren, and other renowned architects appear here, in images accompanied by detailed analyses. The author discusses buildings in a variety of shapes, with separate treatments of vestibules, corridors, domed and vaulted ceilings, pavilions, and other features. Foreword by A. E. Richardson.
