How to Read Buildings
Architecture is an all-embracing adventure without end. It is a story that can never be completed - not as long as mankind continues to build, to invent, to discover; it is the story told in this book. The history of architecture is also a history of many other things - of politics, economy, religion, of science, ecology and of art and culture generally - and so is essentially a history of the world.
