On Architecture
In De architectura (c.40 BC), Vitruvius discusses in ten encyclopedic chapters aspects of Roman architecture, engineering and city planning. Vitruvius also included a section on human proportions. Because it is the only antique treatise on architecture to have survived, De architectura has been an invaluable source of information for scholars. The rediscovery of Vitruvius during the Renaissance greatly fuelled the revival of classicism during that and subsequent periods. Numerous architectural treatises were based in part or inspired by Vitruvius, beginning with Leon Battista Alberti's De re aedificatoria (1485).

Architecture and Revolution
In 1989 Europe witnessed some of the most dramatic events of the twentieth century, with the fall of the Iron Curtain and the collapse of the Soviet Bloc. These original essays address the problems and questions architects, planners and politicians in Central and Eastern Europe have had to consider in formulating a new architecture for a new Europe. The buildings that have been inherited from the communist era bring with them a range of problems, such as environmentally inadequate or structurally unsound architecture, or others, that have been designed to serve a defunct social program. This collection of essays by internationally renowned architects, philosophers and cultural theorists represent a snapshot of informed opinion on these issues.

Medieval Church Architecture
By the end of the medieval period, Britain's churches already had an architectural heritage of one thousand years, much of which remains on view today. This guide by architectural historian Jon Cannon uses high-quality photographs and diagrams to help us to analyze the leading changes in style from the Anglo-Saxon period, through the Romanesque as far as Gothic and Perpendicular. By identifying various clues left by each period, he enables us to date architectural features and styles, and explains the technical terms applied to them. If you have ever wondered how your church or cathedral developed, and want to know your triforium from your blind arcade or your vault from your hammerbeam, all the answers are here.

Knitting Architecture
Explore the true foundations of knitting design: construction, form following function, stability, and ornamentation. The parallels between knitting a sweater and constructing a building seem obvious when considered. Sweaters suspend from yokes and shoulders; vertical planes are shaped to provide fit and allow movement; necklines, sleeves, and hems are adapted for specific purposes. Stitch patterns and textures elaborate design themes, and new and unusual materials can be used to striking effect. Tanis Gray has curated a collection of designs from some of today's most innovative designers, all inspired by architectural themes. From accessories based on art-nouveau ironwork to a sweater that mimics Bauhaus style to a dress based on Greek sculpture, Knitting Architecture celebrates design through history.

Architecture's Odd Couple
In architectural terms, the twentieth century can be largely summed up with two names: Frank Lloyd Wright and Philip Johnson. Wright (1867-1959) began it with his romantic prairie style; Johnson (1906-2005) brought down the curtain with his spare postmodernist experiments. Between them, they built some of the most admired and discussed buildings in American history. Differing radically in their views on architecture, Wright and Johnson shared a restless creativity, enormous charisma, and an outspokenness that made each man irresistible to the media. Often publicly at odds, they were the twentieth century's flint and steel; their repeated encounters consistently set off sparks. Yet as acclaimed historian Hugh Howard shows, their rivalry was also a fruitful artistic conversation, one that yielded new directions for both men. It was not despite but rather because of their contentious-and not always admiring-relationship that they were able so powerfully to influence history. In Architecture's Odd Couple, Howard deftly traces the historical threads connecting the two men and offers readers a distinct perspective on the era they so enlivened with their designs. Featuring many of the structures that defined modern space-from Fallingwater to the Guggenheim, from the Glass House to the Seagram Building-this book presents an arresting portrait of modern architecture's odd couple and how they shaped the American landscape by shaping each other.

From the pyramids of Ancient Egypt to the Sydney Opera House, Andrew Ballantyne explores the history and cultural significance of architecture.
