In this book the author's purpose is to set out the exact grammatical workings of architectural language. He is less concerned with its development in Greece and Rome than with its expansion and use in the centuries since the Renaissance. He explains the vigorous discipline of 'the orders' and the scope of 'rustication'; the dramatic deviations of the Baroque and the relationship between the classical tradition and the 'modern' architecture of today.
