Architecture Through the Ages

Front Cover
Putnam, 1953 - Architecture - 684 pages
The aim of this book is to show that buildings are not isolated objects existing arbitrarily in one or another of the recognizable set "styles" but rather the inevitable results of the ways of living, governing, worshipping, and doing business in practice at the time they were built.
