Inhaltsangabe: An in-depth chronological survey of the key styles and periods of architectural design in the UK and US over the past 500 years, with over 4,000 images. This new edition brings the book up to date with a fully revised chapter on contemporary style and an updated directory of suppliers. Each chapter begins with a broad introduction to the era, summarizing its key style features. Within the chapter there follows a clearly presented guide to the features appropriate for every part of a building, from the major components such as doors, windows, walls, floors, ceilings, and staircases to embellishments such as mouldings and door furniture. A system of colour-coded tabs enables the reader to compare specific features as they have evolved over time. Additional information on restoration and maintenance, biographies of key architects, and a detailed glossary is included.
