Architectural Theory, Volume 1: Malden MA, Oxford, Victoria: Blackwell Publishing,pp. This anthology is a archotectural and comprehensive documentation of the key stages that construct Western architectural theory, from Vitruvius’s classical writing to Gottfried Semper’s theories in late-nineteenth-century Europe.

Comprised of texts by these and other significant writers of architectural theory, it represents an extremely valuable resource for architectural design, history, and theory education and, more broadly, for aesthetic education, art history, aesthetics, and visual culture.

Six stages of development are laid out, beginning with the Classical and Renaissance periods in part I. In part IV, Picturesque and Sublime theories are documented, from which part V turns to consider the importance of Historicism in the nineteenth century and, finally, in part VI the impact theoey Historicism is examined in relation to developments in industrialization.

This colorful construction of architectural theory is evident, especially in those sections that are central to Mallgrave’s ongoing research interests, in the tension between the rational, technical, and empirical discussions that inform seventeenth- eighteenth- and nineteenth-century aesthetics.

Running through parts II and III, for example, is one of the most drawn-out and bitter disputes, which dominated architectural theory in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century French Academy of Architecture.
