This is an easy to use guide to a wide range of architectural styles, from classical times through to the post-modern era. For each style there is a definition, an introduction to the topic, a list of key architects, keywords, and key works as well as suggestions of other styles you might be interested in. Isms: Understanding Architecture is a must for anyone interested in architecture and wanting to know more - whether they be sightseers, visitors to historic buildings or more knowledgeable connoisseurs. A new edition of the original bestselling title, Isms: Understanding Architecture now includes four brand new chapters covering Performatism, Ornamentalism, Giganticism and Bioclimatism.
