How to Build a Cathedral Malcolm Hislop 2012 Gothic cathedrals are monuments to God, witnesses to the historic power of the Church, and symbols of the faith of the thousands of believers who contributed to their creation. They are also astonishing feats of construction and engineering, from a period before steel-making, machine tools and computer simulation; breathtaking in their scale and grandeur even hundreds of years after the religious impulse that produced them has largely faded away. How to Build a Cathedral is a visual exploration of the building of these masterpieces, from the initial groundplan to the topping out of the spire. Illustrated throughout with beautiful engravings, it looks at each element of the structure in turn, explaining the process of construction and the methods that were used. At intervals though the book, special gatefold pages offer a detailed snapshot of the evolution of the building as it rises into the heavens. A 16-page colour section allows for appreciation of stained glass and decorative stonework. With text written by a leading architectural historian, How to Build a Cathedral is an illuminating portrait of the genius of the medieval architect.

The Pennsylvania Barn Robert F. Ensminger 2003-04-28 In his widely acclaimed The Pennsylvania Barn, Robert Ensminger provided the first comprehensive study of an important piece of American vernacular architecture—the forebay bank barn, better known as the Pennsylvania barn or the Pennsylvania German barn. Now, in this revised edition, Ensminger has continued his diligent fieldwork and archival research into the origins, evolution, and distribution in North America of this significant agricultural structure. Including an entire chapter of new material, 85 new illustrations, and updates to previous chapters, this edition of Ensminger's classic work will appeal to students and scholars in cultural and historical geography, folklore and vernacular architectural history, and American studies, as well as to general readers.
St. Mark's Ettore Vio 2003 This authoritative book is by an expert team of scholars, many of whom have made this field their life's work - Over 250 full-colour photographs, over half of which are full-page images and double-page spreads The Basilica of St. Mark's is the most important church in Venice, and one of the most famous in the world. It was built to house the body of St. Mark and is immediately adjacent to the Doge's palace. It was in support of this power and this authority that the Venetians built and decorated what is perhaps the most magnificent church in Christendom.

Lost Boston Jane Holtz Kay 2006 At once a fascinating narrative and a visual delight, Lost Boston brings the city's past to life. This updated edition includes a new section illustrating the latest gains and losses in the struggle to preserve Boston 's architectural heritage. With an engaging text and more than 350 seldom-seen photographs and prints, Lost Boston offers a chance to see the city as it once was, revealing architectural gems lost long ago. An eminently readable history of the city's physical development, the book also makes an eloquent appeal for its preservation. Jane Holtz Kay traces the evolution of Boston from the barren, swampy peninsula of colonial times to the booming metropolis of today. In the process, she creates a family album for the city, infusing the text with the flavor and energy that makes Boston distinct. Amid the grand landmarks she finds the telling details of city life: the neon signs, bygone amusement parks, storefronts, and windows plastered with images of campaigning politicians-sights common in their time but even more meaningful in their absence today. Kay also brings to life the people who created Boston-architects like Charles Bulfinch and H. H. Richardson, landscape architect and master park-maker Frederick Law Olmsted, and such colorful political figures as Mayors John Honey Fitz Fitzgerald and James Michael Curley. The new epilogue brings Boston's story to the end of the twentieth century, showing elements of the city's architecture that were lost in recent years as well as those that were saved and others threatened as the city continues to evolve.

John Russell Pope Steven Bedford 1998 John Russell Pope is considered one of America's finest and most important classical architects, and this lavishly illustrated book, long overdue, is the first comprehensive survey of his work. This definitive study, comprised mainly of projects dating from 1910 to 1937, includes the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art, Constitution Hall, the National Archives, and the Temple of the Scottish Rite in Washington, D.C.; the Frick Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the Duveen Sculpture Gallery (for the Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon) at the British Museum and the Sculpture Hall at the Tate Gallery, both in London; mansions for the Vanderbilts and Marshall Field; and campus plans for the Yale and The Johns Hopkins Universities. Steven McLeod Bedford follows the architect's career from his early education through his development as one of the most important figures in classicism, examining every aspect of Pope's architectural output, from his residential and commercial projects to his museums and monuments. Illustrated with archival photographs and Jonathan Wallen's never-before-published new color photography, John Russell Pope: Architect of Empire captures the enduring beauty and significance of this American master's oeuvre.
