Editorial Reviews

Review

“A new edition of this minor classic of architectural criticism is welcome not only because it is still worth reading but also because it is so apposite, for the architectural situation a hundred years ago was similar to our own. . . .In a period such as our own, where architecture is so dominated by conceptual interpretations, by a seemingly endless succession of -isms, it is useful to be reminded that buildings are—or should be— made to be experienced and enjoyed.” (Witold Rybczynski - The New York Review of Books)

Format: Paperback
Since Notre Dame has the only classical architecture school curriculum in the country, it is obvious why this is required reading for entering students. This is an impassioned defense of the humanist tradition, written just before the Modernist deluge. Anyone interested in the theory behind classical architecture should buy this book. It clearly demolishes fallacies of art criticism committed even today.

Format: Paperback
I read this book over thirty years ago when I was an architecture student at the University of Oregon and had a dificult time undestanding the text. I tried to read it again about ten years after graduation and couldn't develop any excitement or enthusiasm for the book. It is very difficult to understand and is written in somewhat tedious style.
