This fascinating introduction to classical art and architecture is the first book to investigate the way classical buildings are put together as formal structures. It researches the generative rules, the poetics of composition that classical architecture shares with classical music, poetry, and drama, and is enriched by a variety of examples and an extensive analysis of compositional rules. The 205 line drawings make up a discourse of their own, a pictorial text that serves as an introductory theory of composition or basic design aid. Drawing from Vitruvius, the poetics of Aristotle, the theories of classical architecture, music, and poetry since the Renaissance, and the poetics of the Russian formalists, the authors present classical architecture as a coherent system of architectural thinking that is capable of producing a tragic humanistic discourse, a public art with critical, moral, and philosophical meaning. Alexander Tzonis is Crown Professor of Architectural Theory and Methodology at the Technische Hogeschool, Delft. Liane Lefaivre teaches at the Akademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Arnhem.

A practicing architect shows how the elements that constitute the classical interior-wall and ceiling treatments, doors and windows, fireplaces, and stairs-can be composed into rooms satisfying both aesthetic and practical criteria. Historic and contemporary examples illustrate both generic and specific solutions for designers working in the classical tradition today.

This book is about connotative aesthetic principles which could be summarized as principle of subtle difference of visual elements and principle of unification of relation elements. The coordination of the visual elements (shape, color, texture) and the relation elements (massing, image, proportion) is the main constituting element of the spatial design of the city. Principle of subtle difference of visual elements means that when dealing with the unitary architecture among the architectural complex, subtle difference is allowable in shape, color and texture. Meanwhile, this subtle difference should be controlled within a certain range in order to guarantee the visual identity of the complex.

Originally published in 1925, Elements of Form and Design in Classic Architecture is a useful and informative read for students, historians or anyone with an interest in classic architecture. Setting out the geometrical principles which have guided architects since the times of ancient Greece and Rome, with the aid of numerous black and white photos and line drawings, chapters expand upon the construction of circular, semi-circular, elliptical, square and octagonal plans; vestibules, staircases, pavilions, facades, porticos, arches and more. The author, Arthur Stratton, was a leading architectural historian of the time, with additional expertise in Renaissance and Baroque styles.

The author's purpose is to set out as simply and vividly as possible the exact grammatical workings of an architectural language. Classical architecture is a visual "language" and like any other language has its own grammatical rules. Classical buildings as widely spaced in time as a Roman temple, an Italian Renaissance palace and a Regency house all show an awareness of these rules even if they vary them, break them or poetically contradict them. Sir Christopher Wren described them as the "Latin" of architecture and the analogy is almost exact. There is the difference, however, that whereas the learning of Latin is a slow and difficult business, the language of classical architecture is relatively simple. It is still, to a great extent, the mode of expression of our urban surroundings, since classical architecture was the common language of the western world till comparatively recent times. Anybody to whom architecture makes a strong appeal has probably already discovered something of its grammar for himself. In this book, the author's purpose is to set out as simply and vividly as possible the exact grammatical workings of this architectural language. He is less concerned with its development in Greece and Rome than with its expansion and use in the centuries since the Renaissance. He explains the vigorous discipline of "the orders" and the scope of "rustication"; the dramatic deviations of the Baroque and, in the last chapter, the relationship between the classical tradition and the "modern" architecture of today. The book is intended for anybody who cares for architecture but more specifically for students beginning a course in the history of architecture, to whom a guide to the classical rules will be an essential companion.

With architects and urbanists redefining contemporary design and recovering the historic language associated with traditional architecture and the city, there is a hot debate concerning the focus and mission of historic preservation. In The Future of the Past, Semes makes a persuasive case that context matters and that new buildings and additions to old buildings should be harmonious with their neighbors. The book includes detailed case studies of preservation projects from the Louvre and the United States Capitol to Soldier Field in Chicago.

His argument clarifies the continuity in the practice of design method through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a continuity that has been obscured by the emphasis on changing goals instead of design procedures, and examines the influences of modernity and the legend of the Bauhaus.".
