By Jeremy Melvin

The sequel to ...isms: Understanding Art, this pocket-sized guide to the significant "isms" of architectural history spans the period from ancient Greece, Rome, and the Renaissance to the present day. Each spread is devoted to a distinct architectural movement and explains when it first emerged, the historical period to which it applies, the principal disputes over its applicability, and illustrates important structures, practitioners, key words, and distinctive features. From Hellenic Classicism and Expressionism to Brutalism and Blobism, with many stops along the way, these 60 well illustrated and clearly defined "isms" help put all of the architectural styles of the world into context.
