[The Presence of Antiquity in Architecture]
Ed. by Beyer, Andreas
Series:Colloquia Raurica 12
Aims and Scope
The normative and formal presence of classical antiquity – as a mere figure of thought or a fully elaborated body of theory – is one of the great constants in the history of Western architecture. Yet the ideas that people have associated with ancient architecture have undergone major transformations through the course of history. This volume addresses how perceptions of antiquity have evolved over different periods in European architecture.
