The Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius declared firmitas, utilitas, and venustas-firmness, commodity, and delight- to be the three essential attributes of architecture. These qualities are brilliantly explored in this book, which uniquely comprises both a detailed survey of Western architecture, including Pre-Columbian America, and an introduction to architecture from the Middle East, India, Russia, China, and Japan. The text encourages readers to examine closely the pragmatic, innovative, and aesthetic attributes of buildings, and to imagine how these would have been praised or criticized by contemporary observers. Artistic, economic, environmental, political, social, and technological contexts are discussed so as to determine the extent to which buildings met the needs of clients, society at large, and future generations.

Fantastisch geplant, nie verwirklicht Ein Wolkenkratzer, der 1,6 Kilometer hoch ist und 528 Stockwerke hat, eine Glaskuppel, die den größten Teil Manhattans bedeckt, ein Triumphbogen in Form eines Elefanten, Leonardo da Vincis Stadt auf zwei Ebenen: mit den nicht gebauten Projekten wurden anspruchsvolle neue Ideen erforscht, Konventionen hinterfragt und Wege in die Zukunft gewiesen. Einige von ihnen sind Meisterwerke, andere vergnügliche Fantasien. Manche Ideen erscheinen unglaublich kühn. Aber sie verweisen auch auf Gebäude, die Jahrzehnte später entstanden sind, wie das Eden Projekt, ein botanischer Garten, unter Kunststoffkuppeln in Cornwall, oder das Hochhaus The Shard in London.
