A history of Western architecture by David Watkin( Book )

127 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 3,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his highly acclaimed reference work David Watkin traces the history of western architecture from the earliest times in Mesopotamia and Egypt to the eclectic styles of the twenty-first century. The author emphasizes the ongoing vitality of the Classical language of architecture, underlining the continuity between, say, the work of Ictinus in fifth-century BC Athens and that of McKim, Mead and White in twentieth-century New York. Authoritative, comprehensive and highly illustrated, this fifth edition has been expanded to bring the story of western architecture right up to date and includes a separate final chapter on twenty-first century developments

The Roman Forum by David Watkin( Book )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There can be few more historic places in the world. Caesar was cremated there. Charles V and Mussolini rode by it in triumph. Napoleon celebrated his Festival of Liberty there. David Watkin's Forum is the site as it was famous for centuries, celebrated in the romantic views of the Grand Tour, not the archaeologists' building site it has become. He helps us rediscover the Forum's rich history during and since antiquity, and that of the remarkable buildings which later centuries have added to this evocative place."--Global Books in Print

"Sir John Soane: The Royal Academy Lectures contains the full text of Soane's lectures. It is a revised and abridged edition of his award-winning book Sir John Soane: Enlightenment Thought and the Real Academy Lectures. Watkin explains the significance of Soane's approach to architectural history and theory, as expressed in the lectures delivered from 1810 to 1820 as Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy. Providing a key that enables the modern observer to understand the work of an architect who is widely regarded as the most inventive of his day in Europe, the lectures enable us to enter Soane's private dialogue with an array of philosophers, architectural theorists, art historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists. They are accompanied by a selection of the watercolors that Soane prepared as illustrations."--Jacket

The London Ritz : a social and architectural history by Hugh Montgomery-Massingberd( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1989 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of one of the world's greatest hotels. César Ritz was a remarkable 19th-century genius who completely transformed the notion of a hotel. He gave to his establishments a hitherto unknown respectability and set new standards of excellence in luxury, style and personal service. In the case of the London Ritz, even the building itself was an important breakthrough in design, being the first large-scale steel framed building erected in England. The hotel, with its beautiful Louis XVI interior had a significant and widely felt impact on Edwardian architecture. But the story of the Ritz goes deeper than the skin of the building.The heart and soul of any hotel are the people that inhabit it and shape its destiny. This book also traces the social history of the Ritz from the beginning to the present day. From Edward VII and Mrs Keppel to Edward VII and Mrs Simpson, from Lady Diana Cooper to Jacqueline Onassis, from Evelyn Waugh to Mick Jagger. Based on hundreds of interviews with guests and staff both past and present, a fascinating and absorbing story of the rich, the beautiful and famous has been pieced together.The London Ritz is an engrossing, richly illustrated account of the architectural and social history of this world-famous establishment. -- from book jacket
Radical Classicism : the architecture of Quinlan Terry by David Watkin( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quinlan Terry is at home in every traditional style, from Classical Greek to Roman, Gothic to Renaissance, and Baroque to Neoclassical. And yet, though linked with a long tradition, his work is, for its innovation and invention, inescapably modern. In contradistinction to the "signature buildings" by which leading Modernist architects come to be known - buildings frequently to be marked for their structural weaknesses and impractibility, for their immediate glamour and subsequent physical deterioration - Terry's work stands as an elegant and powerful argument for an architecutre built to last centuries."--Jacket
