A compilation of more than 1,100 images that explore and record elements of Mediterranean architecture, in both detail and as whole compositions, from Mediterranean Europe of the Early Renaissance to the United States of today. This exhaustive study is arranged by type of element, including fountains, porches, corbels, wrought iron details, and much more, to show the variety and breadth of styles that Mediterranean Architecture encompasses as a whole. Wander through the romantic settings afforded by the four main groups of this architectural style, the rustic vernacular; the simple and direct Mission Style; the Estate and Villa, with its elaborate detail and mass; and finally the formal Palazzo, which is Mediterranean Architecture in its most ornate and organized form. This is a comprehensive visual reference for architects, interior designers, real estate developers, and students; and a look book extraordinaire for the homeowner working on a vision.
