Rate this:
This comparative history of American architecture, social spaces, and engineered environments--organized by style, and then by chronology--is for the general reader. Within its heavily illustrated pages, Tom Martinson traces two millennia of the built environment of this endlessly fascinating, extraordinarily expansive, and utterly diverse nation. Pairing vibrant photography with a rich knowledge of the history of architecture in America--from the Hopi and Colonial years to neomodernism, Robert A. M. Stern, and Zaha Hadid--the book is a comprehensive overview of styles and developments, as well as telling the story of a country through its buildings.
