Description

The British architect Quinlan Terry has created this book as the ultimate guide to classical architecture. With detailed sketches, he illustrates both the principals of which Classical architecture is based and the ornament that enriches it. The tradition of this architecture persisted into the 20th century, when other ideals began to take over. Terry, who is a strong advocate of classical architecture, wants to refocus on the kind of architecture which was dominant in the western world for almost 2,000 years, but whose background and structure is little known today. The book contains many of Quinlan Terry’s drawings, sketches from travels and linoleum prints. The preface is written by Prince Charles, who holds Quinlan Terry as one of the top contemporary architects.
