Unprecedented in its in-depth coverage, and with over 500 illustrations, photographs, and architectural drawings the multi-volume Companions to the History of Architecture offers an indispensable resource on architectural thought and practice ranging from the 15th century to the present day.

  • AUTHORITATIVE: Brings together an international team of over one hundred eminent historians, academics and practising architects
  • USER-FRIENDLY: Accessibly structured into volumes organized both chronologically and thematically, spanning the architecture of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Enlightenment periods, through to the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries
  • INCLUSIVE: Spans a broad and global range of issues, from the impact of war and religion on city architecture; its relationship with the public; and architecture and the sciences; to examples such as materials and Tectonic expression; Beaux-arts and the Gothic; and contemporary issues, such as contemporary architecture's critical review of its cultural production, ecology, technological saturation, and ontological engagement with a world now largely urbanized
  • CUTTING-EDGE: Reviews the most recent developments in the field, including theory and practice from the past ten years, along with likely future developments in the history of architecture
  • MULTI-FORMAT: Publishing simultaneously in print and online, providing an unparalleled reference work for students and scholars alike
