A good overview of architectural styles, with color photographs. As with most architecture books, I felt there could've been more pictures... but I really appreciated the history that went went along with everything. A books like this helps to integrate historical facts into a memorable timeline.
Love reading about architecture, this book is full of beauty and intrigue. The articles are simple and short, yet informative and insightful. It took me awhile to read but, I wanted to digest each category of artful structures. Need to own this book!
