  • Description or summary of the book: Following the success of Isms: Understanding Art, this engaging and informative guide to the significant 'isms' of architectural history spans from the ancient Greeks, Romans, and the Renaissance up to the present day. Each spread is devoted to a distinct architectural movement and explains when it first emerged, the historical period to which it applies, the principal disputes over its applicability, and illustrates important structures, practitioners, key words, and distinctive features. From Hellenic Classicism and Expressionism to Brutalism and Blobism, with many stops along the way, these sixty well illustrated and clearly defined 'isms' help put all of the 'built environments' of the world into context.
