IN SHORT ABOUT ARCHITECTURE has been dedicated to that art we all have been forced to live with. We may neglect poetry and painting, but architecture invariably stands up in front of us stating: "Look at me!" Therefore, since we have to accept this form or art, why not look at it with an understanding eye? IN SHORT ABOUT ARCHITECTURE is a round with a trained guide of the world architectural heritage, during which the tourist is to stop to view grand creations, having survived the taste of the time and the horrifying disasters, befalling them well neigh before the master builders had completed them. This book will tell the reader how styles had evolved, why architects had done one or another thing and how designers now have been learning (or rather unlearning) the lessons of the past.
