Synopsis

A wide-ranging, substantive history of American architecture from the pre-Columbian to the postmodern. American Architecture introduces the reader to the major developments that shaped the American-built environment from before the Europeans to the present, from the everyday vernacular to the high style of aspiration. Leland M. Roth describes the impact of changes in conceptual imagery, style, building technology, landscape design, and town-planning theory throughout the nations history. Based on his acclaimed and influential Concise History of American Architecture (1980), this new book is double the length with twice as many illustrations, featuring expanded coverage of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, regional styles, and contemporary buildings and architects. The author charts the social, cultural, and political forces that shaped the growth and development of American towns, cities, and suburbs. In ten chapters with 612 illustrations, he provides a full, reliable, and up-to-date description, analysis, and interpretation of American buildings and their architects. The illustrations are integrated into the text and consist of photographs, drawings, plans, and maps.

Well-written and comprehensive, American Architecture is invaluable as guide, study, and reference.

great book about American architecture 21. Oktober 2007
Von A. D. Boyd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm taking Leland Roth's American Architecture class. I was worried about having to use his book for the class, but it turns out to be a very well written, interesting look at the history of American Architecture. Chapters are laid out in a well thought out manner and the pictures and drawings make for a more engaging read. I highly recommend this book for anyone who would like to know more about the built environment around them.

THE book on American Architecture 25. Mai 2012
Von Natalie K Perrin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
To date, this is the only text book I have ever read from cover to cover, and enjoyed every word! Leland Roth's book is exceedingly thorough, and if you ever have a chance to attend a lecture from him you will not be disappointed.

A good book 22. September 2012
Von Patricia Brouillette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I got this for a class I was taking. It is very handy. I like the fact that it is full of information as well as lots of photos that go along with the text. If you are looking for a book on the history of American Architecture, this is it. It does cover the Native Americans, ad covering each of the cultures that came to this land is well organized. It is a very informative book.

Roth demonstrates his knowledge of American architecture time and time again with relevant in depth content for architecture in the United states as well as the origins of the styles used. In a nutshell, indispensable!
