Appearance and Essence: Refinements of Classical Architecture--Curvature
The proceedings of the second Williams Symposium explore the phenomenon of curvature, together with other such "secrets" of classical refinement. Debated ever since the Renaissance, these stunning architectural subtleties are treated here for the first time in a combined effort of international experts.
Ranging from painstaking new technical observations to the wider issues of perception and art theory, this well-illustrated volume demonstrates why classical architecture was—and still is—deemed to be perfect.
