Stylistically, Renaissance architecture followed Gothic architecture and was succeeded by Baroque architecture. Less a comprehensive history than a project to reclaim architecture from architects, Upton’s wry prose casts a gimlet eye onto the pretensions of “art-architecture” from the colonial era to Author: Architectureboston.
