The Elements of Classical Architecture
"This new edition includes photographs that show the structures in situ. In addition, a third part focuses on classical architecture in America. "The American Contribution" contains additional drawings (some prepared especially for this volume) documenting the ways in which American architects shaped traditional models to the concerns of American culture, history, climate, urbanism, and technology, and even forged new building types, such as the classical skyscraper." "Gromort's drawings and the accompanying texts rebuild a body of knowledge that has been sadly discontinued in past decades, but has remained at the core of all architectural scholarship and innovation. This volume offers an abundant resource for all practitioners and students of architecture and design, and will be an invaluable tool for any education in the arts."--BOOK JACKET.
