Rybczynski, who has taught architecture at McGill and Ryerson Universities here and is now at University of Pennslyvania, knows his stuff and writes in an entertaining and most un-professorial style. If you’re interested in the way we came to have sash windows (the ones that slide up and down) instead of casements (the ones that swing open like a door), or why most of our houses have hallways instead of rooms that open into each other, or how we come to have chairs (among other furnishings), or why we do spring cleaning or… this is your book.
