Buildings across Time: An Introduction to World Architecture

Buildings Across Time, 5th Edition offers a survey of world architecture both for students taking introductory courses and for the general reader simply interested in buildings. The authors have searched out the stories these buildings tell, considered the intentions of the people who built them, and examined the lives of those who used them. The text begins with prehistory and ends with early Twenty-First Century. It covers the Western tradition as well as works in the Islamic world, the pre-Columbian Americas, Africa, China, Southeast Asia, Russia, and Japan. All of which comes to life for students within the digital suite, Connect.
