American Architecture, Second Edition (World of Art) ePub download

A good historical approach to major developments in American architecture. This item was in very good shape.

A good historical approach to major developments in American architecture. Good context with influence of European architecture plus influence of Native styles and Spanish-American. Bulk of book focuses on East Coast, West Coast and Chicago, as if nothing happened in the South or rest of Midwest. Unfortunately, I had to drop the course so I never got to read much of the content. It seems like it would be a good reference book.

America has always presented a unique challenge to architects: should they emulate the Old World or respond to the demands of the New? David Handlin tells the complex story with lucidity and insight. Almost from its seventeenth-century beginnings, American architecture was subject to two apparently contradictory processesthe practical and the grandiose. The first comes through in the vernacular buildings of rural America, the innovations of Jefferson, Bulfinch's fine civic buildings, the offices and factories of the Industrial Age, and the comfortable domestic tradition that lies behind the houses of the Greene Brothers and Frank Lloyd Wright. The second is seen in the unprecedented daring of the Chicago Schoolgreat engineers like Adler united with great designers like Sullivan; in the majestic state capitols, exhibition halls, and public buildings by firms such as McKim, Mead & White; in the luxury of Fifth Avenue mansions; and in the exuberance of commercial Manhattan.The revised edition ends with a lively account of recent developmentsvirtual architecture, the revival of historical styles (including modernism), the thirst for striking originality, and a new interest in the local, with figures including Stern, Meier, Gehry, and Mockbee. 264 illustrations.

This item was in very good shape. I ordered it as a textbook for a class on the History of American Architecture. Unfortunately, I had to drop the course so I never got to read much of the content. It seems like it would be a good reference book. I'm going to hang onto it in case I need it when the class comes back around. Thanks!
