De Re Aedificatoriaby Leon Battista Albertiwas the first modern treatise on the theory and practice of architecture. Its importance for the subsequent history of architecture is incalculable, yet englih is the first English translation based on the original, exceptionally eloquent Latin text on which Alberti’s reputation as a theorist is founded. Rykwert and his team have restored the pleasures of Alberti’s writing for English readers This undoubtedly deserves to become the standard English translation.

Alberrti English edition surpasses the earlier one in a number of significant ways It will no doubt soon find a place on all architectural reading lists, and deservedly so. A new and valuable resource which immediately relegates to the category of a curiosity Rykwert’s earlier republication of James Leoni’s translation Now all those involved with architecture Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

Please try again later. I have studied this book several times in undergraduate and graduate school for Architecture. I thought it would be good to have it entlish my shelf.

Some of the text is difficult to understand, for the translation may be slightly awkward, but the content to aedoficatoria the book is over never gets old and is still used in some degree today. If you are at all interested in Renaissance figures, or have an interest in architecture, then this is a must read.

LBA was the man for which the term Renaissance Man was first used. Much of what is credited to others today was actually first done, said, created, ve thought of by LBA. One person found this helpful. Alberti’s ideas are studied at almost very Architecture Program in the world. The Ten Books of Architecture describe how to design successfully, and how to design towns that are safe.

Alberti expands on the work of Vitruvius. I would recommend this book for anyone who has an intrest in design. The text is very simple to understand. After reading these books, one will have a much clearer understanding of design. This book is half a millennium old and I think it’s easier and more pleasurable to read than most current authors writing about architecture.


This is a classic, no doubt about that – but it’s not dry and boring like I assumed it would be since it was assigned reading for a class.

Alberti’s genial personality and sense of humor shine through and enliven this text. See all 6 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers. Learn more about Amazon Giveaway.
