It must address a fundamental shift in the world's population towards the cities, and away from mankind's rural roots. Over the course of two years, a group of internationally renowned professionals from a variety of different disciplines and backgrounds gathered together in six world cities to take stock of the new urban condition and to offer an approach to dealing with it. The result was a sometimes passionate, always challenging and informed debate on how architects, urbanists, politicians and policy makers can constructively plan the infrastructure and development of the endless city, to promote a better social and economic life for its citizens." - Publisher.

The Elements of Style: A Practical Encyclopedia of Interior Architectural Details from 1485 to the Present
New York Simon & Schuster 1991 0671739816 / 9780671739812 Hardcover Very Good Fine 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
Cloth, gilt, 544 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 29 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Lower right corners lightly bumped. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Profusely illustrated (art, architecture). "The Elements of Style is the most comprehensive visual survey, period by period, feature by feature, of the styles that have had the greatest impact on interiors of American and British domestic architecture. Unsurpassed in its range of illustrations, this magnificent volume covers more than 500 years of architectural styles from Tudor to Post-Modern and includes a wealth of American and British vernacular styles. Everyone from owners of period houses, restorers, and architects to interior designers, do it-yourself homeowners, and all those interested in our building heritage will find this reference indispensable. More than 3,000 analytical drawings and historic engravings are included in this updated edition as well as 400 photographs in color and over 1,000 in black and white. These extraordinary images provide a systematic guide to the features appropriate for every part of a building, from the major components such as doors, windows, walls, floors, ceilings, and staircases to the small but important embellishments such as moldings and door hardware. At the heart of the book is a chronological treatment of the primary styles and periods of architectural design during the past 500 years. Each chapter begins with an illustrated essay, then looks in turn at individual features, from doors and windows to ironwork and woodwork. The usefulness of this book is further enriched by the inclusion of permanent or semipermanent fixtures such as lighting, kitchen stoves, and floor and wall coverings, as well as strictly architectural details. A useful system of quick reference, employing color-coded tabs keyed to each feature, enables the reader to trace how particular features evolved over time. And at the back of the book, separate chapters dealing with vernacular architecture are followed by a glossary and a fully updated directory of suppliers of authentic materials as well as period and reproduction features. / Stephen Calloway, general editor and contributor of the Early Georgian and Regency period chapters, is a former curator of paintings at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. He is a full-time writer, lecturer, and consultant on architecture, interior design, and the history of taste. His books include Twentieth Century Decoration and Baroque Baroque, and he writes regularly for a number of periodicals including The World of Interiors, House and Garden, and Elle Decoration." - Publisher.
