Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Gothic and Gothic Revival, or how to distinguish between Baroque and Neoclassical? This guide makes extensive use of photographs to identify and explain the characteristic features of nearly 300 buildings. The result is a clear and easy-to-navigate guide to identifying the key styles of western architecture from the classical age to the present day.
Owen Hopkins works for the Architecture Programme at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. He is the author of Reading Architecture: A Visual Lexicon (Laurence King, 2012).
