Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Roth's American Architecture is the perfect companion text to any course on American architecture. Its readability and chronological organization provides students with an in-depth and comprehensive survey of the major trends in the field. The plans, diagrams, and sections are particularly clear and well executed, which is a great resource when teaching.”
Emily Morash, Connecticut College

“This book has been extremely useful for my course—it is long enough that I can use it as the main anchor of the course, but not so long that it is daunting to the students. Students typically find it clear and engaging. Roth's approach is excellent…broad and inclusive. His writing style is clear and his observations on theory and social content are refreshingly free of jargon. American Architecture: A History is the most comprehensive and thoroughly illustrated survey of American architecture available. Building on the author's lifetime of research, it is extremely valuable as a reference book and also provides a highly readable introduction to this fascinating topic.”
Jeffery Howe, Boston College

"This second edition of American Architecture has a great deal more to offer than did the original publication. The original author, Leland Roth, is here joined by his daughter, Amanda Roth Clark. They have completely rewritten the original to reflect an additional 15 years of teaching, research, and scholarship. The authors added new subject matter, included dozens of new footnotes, extended bibliographies for all chapters, almost doubled the glossary of architectural terms, and did a natty redesign of the table of contents. In addition, the illustrations . . . are clearer, richer, more impressive, and much more inclusive of neighboring landscapes of historic buildings. A whole new chapter covers American architecture of the 21st century. . . Highly recommended.” —Choice

"With extensive revisions and substantive additions, Leland Roth has made this second edition to American Architecture not only the most thorough examination of its subject, but also the most up-to-date. It remains a key reference work in the field.
Richard Longstreth, George Washington University

“Leland M. Roth's American Architecture is the smartest, most insightful text written on American architecture. This new edition makes it even more accessible for a new generation of students.”
Timothy Orwig, Northeastern University

Présentation de l'éditeur

In American Architecture, Leland Roth introduces the reader to the major developments that shaped the American-built environment from before the arrival of the Europeans to the present, from ceremonial enclosures and homes to Modernism and its discontents. There is extensive historical coverage of 17th and 18th century architecture and regional styles. On both the high style architecture of aspiration and the everyday vernacular architecture, Roth presents the historical impact of changes in conceptual imagery, style, building technology, landscape design, and town planning theory. He charts the gradual development of towns, cities, and suburbs along with the social, cultural, and political forces that shaped their growth.“Buildings, like politics, are based on the fine art of compromise, and every building represents a judicious balance between the conflicting needs and aspirations of the client, architect, and builder. Americans, especially, it would seem, have been caught between divergent needs and desires, between the impulse, on the one hand, to build pragmatically and efficiently, and the wish, on the other hand, to realize a conceptual ideal,” writes Roth. These ten chapters provide a full, reliable, and up-to-date description, analysis, and interpretation of American buildings and their architects. The 612 illustrations— consisting of photographs, drawings, plans and maps— are integrated throughout the text. Well-written and comprehensive, Roth's American Architecture is invaluable as a guide, a study, and a reference.
