This book defines classical architecture in all its manifestations, from Graeco-Roman antiquity, through its re-working during the Renaissance, the inventiveness of Baroque and Rococo, the rediscovery of antiquity, to the various phases of late classicism throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. It also explores the language of classical architecture, and demonstrates its cultural, emotional and symbolic richness compared to today's architectural language. The author points out the integral role of ornament and decoration in classical architecture. Also included in this book is an illustrated glossary.
