Visions of Architecture.
Lees, Stephen.
Visions of Architecture.
This collection of essays explores the development and influence of a wide range of architectural styles over the past three hundred years, providing interesting details about the construction of the buildings and exploring the societal and political pressures that influenced their creation. Author Stephen Lees looks at how each generation of builders brought innovative new materials to the construction process that allowed for extending the scope and size of each project. The text is beautifully illustrated with more than fifty line drawings of a large variety of buildings and examples of great, visionary architecture in the Western world, including the Renaissance St. Pancras Hotel in London; the original Pennsylvania Railroad Station and Chrysler Building, both in New York; the Stoclet Palace in Brussels; and the Acropolis in Athens.
