Translated into five languages to date, it has set a high bar for both scholarship and presentation of 5,000 years of the built environment. Organized along a global timeline, A Global History of Architecture, Third Edition has been updated and revised throughout to reflect current scholarship, including an expanded section on contemporary global architecture. Spanning from 3,500 b.c.e. to the present, this unique guide is written by an all-star team of architectural experts in their fields who emphasize the connections, contrasts, and influences of architectural movements throughout history. Also new to the Third Edition are expanded chapter introductions that set the stage for the global views, and expanded maps. For the first time, an online Interactive Resource Center helps bring to life the framework for interpreting and understanding architecture, supplemented by rich drawings form the renowned Francis D.K. Ching, as well as brilliant photographs.
