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.

Eine Architektur, die in einer sinnlichen Verbindung zum Leben stehen soll, erfordert ein Denken, das über Form und Konstruktion weit hinausgeht. Dieses Buch, dessen erste Auflage seit Jahren vergriffen ist, wurde nun um drei neue Essays ergänzt: “Hat Schönheit eine Form?”, “Die Magie des Realen” und “Das Licht in der Landschaft”. Das Buch erhielt nicht nur eine neue Typografie von Hannele Grönlund, sondern wurde mit eigens von Laura Padgett neu aufgenommen Farbfotos von Zumthors neuem Wohn- und Atelierhaus in Haldenstein auch durchgehend neu illustriert. In seinen Texten bringt Peter Zumthor zum Ausdruck, was ihn zu diesen Gebäuden motiviert, die Gefühl und Verstand auf so vielfältige Weise ansprechen und über eine unbedingte Präsenz und Ausstrahlung verfügen.

In Travels in the History of Architecture, renowned architectural writer Robert Harbison provides an engaging and concise companion to the great themes and aesthetic movements in architecture from antiquity to the present day. The book begins its journey with the great temples of the Egyptians and the shrines of Classical Greece and Rome and then provides a complete survey of architecture through the present day. Each chapter of this dynamic and approachable volume focuses on a movement in architectural history, including Byzantine, Baroque, Mannerism, Historicism, Functionalism, and Deconstruction. Unique to this work is Harbison’s wide-ranging approach, which draws on references and examples outside of architecture—from literature, art, sculpture, and history—to further illustrate and contextualize the themes and ideas of each period. Travels in the History of Architecture is an indispensable guide to the world’s most famous structures.
