Abstract / Description

Using the idea that architectural representation is best understood as a participatory act, this chapter aims to re-contextualise the continuity of 'communicative' or 'poetic' thought in relation to architectural discourse from antiquity to the quattrocento by tracing themes that were also evident in the medieval world.
