Inhaltsangabe: Art lovers, art students, and vacation travelers to world-famous sites will relish this beautifully bound and lavishly illustrated book. It explores and explains the architectural elements of buildings and monuments--the arches, domes, roofs, walls, entrance ways, windows, arcades, and ornamental details that give each structure its own distinctive character. Discussing these elements from both an aesthetic and a practical, structural point of view, this beautiful volume presents technical drawings as well as interior and exterior photos of architectural landmarks around the world. Structures examined range from the buildings of classical Greece and Rome to the giant modern Gateway Arch that overlooks the Mississippi River in St. Louis. Variations on architectural elements are illustrated and analyzed. For example, a discussion of the arch includes examples of--

  • The Roman Arch --both as incorporated into buildings and as stand-alone monuments, for example, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris
  • The Lancet Arch --the elongated, pointed arch that distinguishes Europe's Gothic cathedrals
  • The Ogee, or Venetian Arch --an ornate arch used, for instance, in Venice's Palace of the Doges
  • The Four-Centered Arch --an elliptical or pointed arch used, for instance, in Moorish Islamic buildings

    Readers will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of what went into the planning and construction of cathedrals, mosques, seats of government, private mansions, office blocks, apartment complexes, museums, castles, monuments, towers, and theaters. Hundreds of full-color photos and illustrations.

    Architectura Analyzes Great Buildings in Detail including--
    The Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (now, Istanbul, Turkey), an edifice of the late Roman Empire. It was built as a Christian church in the fourth century by the Emperor Justinian. Transformed into a mosque in 1453 by the Ottoman Turks, it stands today as a great museum. Architectura examines the construction of this monumental building, using detailed cross-section drawings to demonstrate how ancient Roman architects and engineers built its great central dome.
  • Umschlagtext: (back cover)
    Influenced by history, shaped by ingenuity, and defined by creativity, architecture is the world's most universal art. It is the point where design, engineering, and culture intersect--not only to produce effective buildings, but to create the icons that define the world's cultures, from the temple and the house to the skyscraper and the stadium.

    By examining in detail the individual elements such as foundations, walls, roofs, staircases, and windows that make up public and private buildings, Architectura: Elements of Architectural Style presents a unique overview of the history of architecture and building. It describes the purpose, design, and practical applications of these component parts, and clearly illustrates the varied expressions of each part. In addition, the book highlights the technical accomplishments of builders, architects, and engineers, as well as the distinctive aesthetics of particular periods and movements.

    Contains more than 60 original and highly detailed illustrations

    (front flap)
    Architectura takes an innovative approach to the history of architecture, examining the components and forms that make up buildings and the ways in which architects, engineers, and builders have responded to human needs and technical challenges. It considers the roof, the window, or the wall as universal phenomena that have developed over thousands of years, and shows the importance of building materials, techniques, and functional requirements on these and other aspects of buildings. Thus, the book takes the reader to the very heart of how and why architectural structures develop in the ways they do.

    The detailed introduction examines the role of architecture in the lives of individuals and societies, and provides an overview of the evolution of architectural forms. Each of the eleven chapters that follow covers a key architectural element, starting with materials and techniques, and ranging from foundations, walls, doors, and roofs to ceilings, windows, and building ornamentation, as expressed in different cultures and historical periods. Throughout the book, there are special entries on the world's most important and influential buildings and architects, while the comprehensive reference section includes a glossary of architectural terms and styles as well as a full index.

    Architectura contains more than 500 full-color photographs of buildings and architectural features discussed in the text. These views include interiors and exteriors--ranging from entire buildings to minute details--and show the creativity and ingenuity of architects and builders throughout the ages. More than 60 original illustrations, including cutaways, cross-sections, and technical drawings, provide a visual reference to the range of forms of key building features.

    An authoritative and enlightening study, Architectura has been written by an international team of architectural historians and architects.
