The Layman’s Guide to Classical Architecture


The British architect Quinlan Terry has created this book as the ultimate guide to classical architecture. With detailed sketches, he illustrates classical architecture created by the Greek Vitruvius around the year 100. The tradition of this architecture persisted into the 20th century, when other ideals began to take over. Terry, who is a strong advocate of classical architecture, wants to refocus on the kind of architecture which was dominant in the western world for almost 2,000 years, but whose background and structure is little known today.
