To find a theory of architecture that transcends historical styles, Clark and Pause, both from North Carolina State University, offer analyses of 104 buildings presented in conventional drawings and then assessed for archetypal patterns or formative ideas. They use a diagrammatic technique applicable to any structure and provide a vocabulary for architectural analysis that is useful for considering older works as well as future designs. The third edition adds 16 new buildings to the works considered. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
