The author designed this guide not for the experience architect, but for the "building watcher," as an aid to experiencing architecture. It is concerned entirely with the visual characteristics of the various styles as they can be seen from the outside. Each style is illustrated with several photographs (there are almost 200 in all) arranged so that each group informs visually to best advantage.
