Paris: An Architectural History
New Haven: Yale University Press, 1993.
222 pages. A fascinating study, with hundreds of illustrations, claiming that the unusual unity of Parisian architecture owes its roots to a classical tradition, that was reinforced by Haussmann's re-building of the city.
While other capitals unravelled into disparate styles, Paris has remained unusually homogeneous, even up to the resurgence of classicist motifs in the modern age.
