Demystifying the 'isms' that are often used to define, yet more often misleadingly cloud, stylistic movements in architecture. Each architectural movement is explained in simple terms and made more accessible to the casual architecture aficionado with an array of pictured examples. Alongside these examples are highlights of the key features of the style, past stylistic sources and influences, important practitioners, and notable built examples. Glossaries. Color illus. 160p.
