Summary
    Art and Architecture explores the ways art has been an integral part of architecture and building since prehistory. Readers learn what architectural art is, why it is used, and how it is created. They become familiar with different forms of architectural art including painting, sculpture, mosaics, and the decorative arts. They also learn about the often hidden myths and symbolism in architectural art.

    The book includes chapters on tectonic sculpture, civic monuments, secular and Christian art in architecture, and classical art. It also examines art in the architecture of ancient Egypt, eastern and western Asia, and America.

    Art and Architecture leads students to the realization that some of the greatest paintings in history were never placed on canvas and some of the greatest sculpture did not stand alone. They were part of architecture. The book is ideal for courses in architectural history, art history survey courses, and as a supplemental text for architecture students.


    Leo Hansen holds a bachelor of architecture from the University of Notre Dame and a master of arts in liberal studies from the University of Miami, where in 2003 he received an Award of Academic Merit. Professor Hansen is an adjunct faculty member at Florida Atlantic University's School of Architecture in Boca Raton, Florida. He is also the author of Art and Architecture (Cognella Academic Publishing, 2015) and a member of both the Society of Architectural Historians and the American Institute of Architects.
