The first five chapters set forth methods of examining buildings and provide tools for formal analysis. The last ten chapters loosely follow a historical timeline but primarily address broader architectural ideas in a spatial context. Landscapes and cities are examined as extensions of architectural ordering systems. Heavily illustrated with bandw photographs, maps, and line drawings.
