Sinopsis: This title aims at displaying clearly the characteristic features of the architecture of each country by comparing the buildings of each period and by giving due prominence to the influences - geographical, geological, climactic, religious, social, and historical - which have contributed to the formation of particular styles, and which hitherto have not been systematically emphasized.
The analytical and comparative method adopted enables the essentials of individual styles to be easily grasped; thus the character of Gothic is emphasized by comparison with Classic and Renaissance architecture. Each style is considered under five sections 1) Influences - including geographical, climatic, social, geological, religious, and historical 2) Architectural Character 3) Examples 4) Comparative Analysis - plans, walls, openings, roofs, columns, mouldings, ornament and 5) Reference Books.
