A history of Western architecture by David Watkin( Book )

109 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,014 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 )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Blurb: The ruins of the Forum in Rome, the centre of its ancient Empire, are one of the best known wonders of antiquity and a highpoint of the tourist route round the Eternal City, but the Forum remains for many visitors a baffling and unwelcoming place. Yet there can be few more historic and evocative places in the world. Caesar was cremated there. Charles V and Mussolini rode by it in triumph. There Napoleon celebrated his festival of liberty. David Watkin's Forum is the site as it was famous for hundreds of years, celebrated in the haunting engravings of Piranesi and the romantic views of the Grand Tour, not the archaeological building site it has become. With a radical appraisal he teaches us to see the Forum with new eyes and helps us to rediscover its rich history during and since antiquity and that of the remarkable buildings which later centuries have added. His book will be as stimulating to the armchair traveller as it will be useful as a guide to the Forum itself
Sir John Soane : enlightenment thought and the Royal Academy lectures by David Watkin( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

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
