The History of Architecture Summary

The History of Architecture: Settings and Rituals by Spiro Kostof

* New final chapter * Two revised chapters This second edition of the late Spiro Kostof's major work on the history of the built environment (first published in 1985) has been updated with a concluding chapter, 'Designing the Fin-de-Siecle'. Based on Professor Kostof's last lecture notes, the chapter was prepared by Greg Castillo, his research assistant and literary executor. Castillo also revised the two preceding chapters, 'Architecture and the State: The Interwar Years' and 'At Peace with the Past: The Last Decades' to keep them consistent within the time frame. Throughout the book, many of the fine original line drawings by Richard Tobias have been replaced or updated by him, as have some 50 photographs, for improved clarity.
