Inhaltsangabe: This study of the development of architecture in the Roman Empire during the 300 years from the age of Augustus to the move of the capital to Constantinople in AD 330 is particularly concerned with the architects and their patrons and with the building techniques and the materials.
"Attractive and carefully presented. . . . It has the virtues of being clear, concise, and readable."--Times Literary Supplement
"Frank Sear has entered the arena. . . . Beginning with a brief chapter on Republican construction, he follows chronologically with chapters on Italian projects by Imperial patrons, from Augustus through Hadrian. . . . Post-Hadrianic buildings are first introduced in the provinces, then succinctly summarized in a final chapter on the Late Empire. Separate sections cover Roman building types; architects, building techniques, and materials; and de rigueur analysis of the best preserved Roman cities, Pompeii and Ostia. . . . His descriptions of Roman structures are succinct and informative, encompassing archaeological as well as architectural data. The engineering aspects are particularly well explained, from the workings of a Roman bath to the erection of a lighthouse, and the explanations are supported by clear, well delineated drawings."--Design Book Review
