Summary
    Culture and Architecture: An Integrated History is a brief survey of architectural history, from its prehistoric origins to the present day. It explores architecture as the most prodigious and most visible art form, examines architecture's integral relationships with culture, and places the great monuments of the world within contexts that help explain why they were built and why they are considered great artistic works.

    Culture and Architecture is organized into six major time divisions that explore prehistory, antiquity, late antiquity, the middle ages, the pre-modern era, and the modern era. Each chapter includes photographs and drawings of the most important works during that period, and the appendix lists important general architectural terms.

    Culture and Architecture is an ideal course book for students in foreign studies, art, anthropology, history, or anyone interested in architecture and culture. It is written to foster an appreciation of architecture from students from all disciplines and fields of study.
    The Third Edition will be published Fall 2021.

    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.
