Even the most inventive and revolutionary architects of today owe debts to the past, often to the distant past when architecture really was being invented for the first time. Architects depend on their own imaginations for personal insights and originality but their ideas may be stimulated (consciously or subliminally) by particularly powerful buildings from history. The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History: Architecture’s Archetypes identifies ten architectural archetypes that have been sources of inspiration for architects through the centuries. Each archetype is analysed through distinctive examples, following the methodology established by the author in his previous books. The variety of 'lines of enquiry’ each archetype has provoked in latter-day architects are then explored by analysing their work to reveal ideas inspired by those earlier buildings. Archetypes have a timeless relevance. In adopting this approach, The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History is as pertinent to contemporary practice as it is to understanding buildings from antiquity, and offers insights into the bridges of influence that can operate between the two.

The evolution of contemporary environmental architecture has outstripped simple labels. A deeper pattern is emerging where the world's most innovative buildings are a response to place. They resolve the complex intertwining of the site, people and environment, providing a provocative observation of the future of architecture. By starting with the site these projects maximize the natural and cultural resources available and are humancentric. The book explores firsthand how Spain Wraps commercial buildings, Japan Condenses micro homes, and Australia Unfolds aggressive design solutions in a climate of extremes. Germany, Cascadia, Denmark, and Mexico are also featured. 30 selected projects provide the antidote to the legacy of the modernist movement of generic, technology-driven built environments. Illuminating and often surprising conversations with renowned architects on their work reveal the process and promise of hyperlocalized design which folds bold visions into low impact and unexpected buildings. Their contemporary wisdom of site responsive design offers an unprecedented insight into architecture's new place in a changing climate.

That's why the cultural question becomes interesting because at that point the culture can express itself in a creative way. It still has integrity because you're expressing yourself creatively within a context. Your solving for rich, local problems. All sustainability, like politics is local. It has to be." - William McDonough in [ours]

This book is a systematic overview of the temple architecturebuilt in eastern India between the ninth and sixteenth centuries.Spanning eight hundred years, it defines the tradition of TempleArchitecture of eastern India and examines the traits of continuityand of disruption in the tradition.In the absence of many extant examples of temples in the regionduring this whole period, the study uses the architectural fragmentsand votive shrines housed in various archives and museumsof the world. The study locates and identifies more than fortytemples of the period up to 1500 CE, and goes on to documentand analyse them in order to develop an understanding of a regionaltype of nagara temple. The study identified the presence ofall three modes called latina, phamsana and valabhi of the northIndian nagara tradition of temple architecture.Another significant feature of the study is the analysis of there-use of earlier Hindu-Buddhist architectural fragments in laterIslamic structures in order to develop an understanding of theearlier architecture and to show how the re-use of such fragmentsinfluenced the architecture of the Sultanate period in a major way,forming the basis of an architectural vocabulary.In the concluding part, the origin and development of the Mughalperiod temples characterized by the chala, bangla and ratna typesis explained, while emphasizing the continuities and elements ofdisruptions that had taken place since the beginning of the ninthcentury.The foreword of the book is written by Dr. George Michell whohave earlier edited two best known books on the architecture ofthe region: Brick Temples of Bengal (From the Archives of DavidMcCutchion) PUP, Princeton, New Jersey, 1983 and IslamicHeritage of Bengal UNESCO publications, Paris, 1984.
