Summary
"The present volume discusses the most important treatises on architecture from the Renaissance to today. The authors explore the origins of each treatise and examine the motives that have prompted architects over the past 500 years to set down their ideas on paper. Grouped by nation and epoch, the writings of Leon Battista Alberti, Andrea Palladio, Marc-Antoine Laugier, Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, John Shute Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Aldo Rossi and Rem Koolhaas are just some of those discussed"--Inside front cover
