For over 60 years Nikolaus Pevsner's study of European architecture has been regarded as a seminal work for students and enthusiasts of architecture. This updated, large format edition expands upon the original through the integration of more than 200 superb color photographs and additional plan drawings, vigorously supporting Pevsner's argument that "the good architect requires the sculptor's and the painter's modes of vision." Reviewing the most beautiful and dramatic structures of Europe from the 4th century onwards, Pevsner conducts a sweeping tour of Romanesque basilicas, Gothic cathedrals, Renaissance villas, and Baroque churches that define "the changing spirits of the changing ages"; considers the revival of medieval forms in the age of Romanticism and the Arts and Crafts Movement; and surveys the radical geometry of 20th-century Modernism. Michael Forsyth brings the review up to the present, considering recent buildings by such modern masters as James Stirling, Norman Foster, and Frank Gehry.

"A definitive and personal overview of the buildings that make European cities the glories they are, written by one of the great critics of the century."Guardian (London)
