5.0 out of 5 stars A pictorial "Ferrari" of history of architecture books 25 Aug 2007
By Eugene Tenenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A part of the series History of World Architecture originally published by Electa in Italian in 1971-7 under a general editorship of Pier Luigi Nervi, it was translated to English and published by Abrams in US (Academy Editions in UK) in 1971-80 in b&w only, but at 10 x 11 1/4 inches. Subsequently, the series was reedited, shrunk to 8 5/7 x 9 1/2 inches, and published by Electa / Rizzoli in US (Faber & Faber in UK) in 1985-9 with a few color photos added including each front cover. In the early 2000's, the series was reissued by Phaidon unchanged except for the front cover photo. It is a pictorial "Ferrari" of history of architecture books. Almost every page contains one or - usually - more than one illustration as photo, plan, section, elevation, axonometric view, etc. of the highest quality. They depict the best examples of topical architecture covering the most significant ones. The text was written by one of the best experts in the field. While relatively concise, it still is comprehensive and complete enough even for students of architecture.

The content is truly the best thing about this. It offers new insight to many traditional architecture buildings that one studies during school.
