This widely acclaimed, beautifully illustrated survey of Western architecture is now fully revised throughout, including essays on non-Western traditions. The expanded book vividly examines the structure, function, history, and meaning of architecture in ways that are both accessible and engaging. Significant features of the third edition include: * Increased global coverage, with new essays on Africa, Japan, China, India, Islamic architecture, and the architecture of the Americas. * A new chapter covering twenty-first century architecture. * Updated coverage of sustainable and green architecture and its impact on design. * Revised historical survey and expanded and illustrated timeline. * Thoroughly revised and expanded art program, including more than 650 black and white images--135 new to this edition, and more than 200 line art drawings created by author Leland Roth. A new 32-page, full color insert features more than 50 new color images. Understanding Architecture continues to be the only text in the field to examine architecture as a cultural phenomenon as well as an artistic and technological achievement with its straightforward, two-part structure: The Elements of Architecture and The History and Meaning of Architecture. Comprehensive and clearly written, Understanding Architecture is a classic survey of architecture.

“Superbly illustrated throughout. . . It remains the only text to discuss architecture as a cultural phenomenon, making this a top recommendation. . . . Understanding Architecture is the ideal textbook for classroom curriculums and a very strongly recommended addition to both community and academic Architectural Studies reference collections.”
—The Midwest Book Review
Praise for Previous Editions:
“I enthusiastically recommend this 2nd edition, which includes a comprehensive new chapter on such contemporary architectural trends as postmodern traditionalism, neoexpressionism, deconstruction, critical regionalism, and sustainable architecture. Understanding Architecture is a versatile main text that works well for both general humanities courses and more advanced classes in architectural history.”
— Dr. David Seamon, Professor of Architecture, Kansas State University
"Powerful and Moving."
— Judith Cushman-Hammer, Appalachian State University
