This is an informative and authoritative text with over 250 photographs, maps, diagrams and cross-sections providing a perfect history of Roman architecture. It examines the classical buildings of the Roman Empire, from the military fortifications of Hadrian's Wall in the west to the magnificent temples and libraries of Ephesus and Palmyra in the east. You can discover the architectural legacy of the Romans - and the influence their building techniques and arches, vaults and domes have had on the development of classical architecture throughout the Renaissance and the Enlightenment to the post-modern classical developments of today. This book focuses on Rome's influence on the development of world art and architecture, and the building of ancient Rome - the first global city, and a world capital that pioneered a universally adopted architectural style. Detailed cross-sections and beautiful drawings of the Colosseum, the Pantheon and other World Heritage buildings reveal Roman techniques and architectural styles.With this book, readers, historians and travellers can uncover, explore and understand the wonder of the stones of Roman architecture for themselves, guided by 250 wonderful colour photographs, illustrations and diagrams, and led by an authoritative text by two of the world's foremost experts on the subject.
