The volume is organized in 12 series of chapters based on a key architectural themes – including space, time, matter, gravity, light, silence, dwelling, ritual, memory, landscape, and place.

Each chapter begins with an introductory essay, and includes a wide variety of historical examples from around the world, followed by in-depth analysis of 6 key buildings that further exemplify the theme of that chapter.

By combining a broad historical sweep with a jargon-free architectural study of space and the direct experience of architecture, this volume is a unique introduction to the experience of architecture.
