The book analyses the elemental terminology and images used in architectural criticism, reviewing the concepts of composition, style and fashion based on the most important bibliography of the last quarter of the 20th century. The book also includes critical texts of two books the author considers the most influential publications written about architecture in the last decades: Austrian architect Christopher Alexander's "A Pattern Language" (1977) and "The Timeless Way of Building" (1979).
