            From the humblest Barratt home to the most spectacular ziggurat, buildings in every era and every place have been shaped by the energy available for their construction. In this utterly original and compelling guide, Barnabas Calder tells the history of architecture through the pr...ism of energy usage. We now have access to more energy than we could ever need, and so design buildings that go far beyond practicality. Calder explores what this means for our architecture, and surveys history's most influential architects and structures. In the age of sustainable design and impact reduction, The Story of Architecture offers a fresh and timely perspective on our buildings and the creative ingenuity we pour into them.
