In this fascinating tour of our buildings and our social history, architect and critic Hale examines the historical movement in the 1830s, when builders and architects began to lose their sense of surety about what they were doing, and explores the societal pressures that turned buildings from pure efforts at expression into structures laden with symbols. Photos and illustrations.
