Study of the Orders

Digital Scanning Inc, 2002 - Architecture - 387 pages

The Study of The Orders is a simple but comprehensive treatise on "The Five Orders of Architecture". It provides clear, concise description of the Classic Orders and the system of proportions to which the Orders were reduced by the Renaissance architects. Originally offered to students of the American School of Correspondence in Chicago, this volume contains the three instruction papers and accompanying plates as well as photographs of noted examples of Classic and Renaissance Architecture.

áThe architectural use of the classical orders continues unabated, yet there are limited sources for formal study. The Study of the Orders offers complete and detailed instruction on their history and use.
