The book had its genesis in the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures at Harvard University in the spring of , and it was recognized from the outset as a series of related essays on seminal topics in the organization of human spaces, obtaining fresh insights, not from a panoramic survey, "but by isolating and examining certain specific events intensively, penetrating and exploring them in the manner of the close-up " as Giedion outlined his method. Giedion revised and enlarged the book five times after the first edition in 2nd edition ; 3rd edition ; 4th edition ; 5th edition The book has continued to be printed since then, most recently in All editions have been published by the original publisher, Harvard University Press. The major change from the first to the second edition was the predominance of coverage given to the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto , more than any other architect in the book, including Le Corbusier , when Aalto had barely been mentioned in the first edition. The reason given for this, is that Giedion saw Aalto as the architect best demonstrating the move away from International Style modernism synonymous with the Bauhaus towards a more organic architecture.

The book is one of the great classics in the history and still has a lot of interesting ideas. From here, for example, the interest for the material culture or the relationship between architecture and nature.
The approach is Giedion comparatist, perhaps for his education midway between the history of art and engineering, and puts it in relation to the architecture with technological and artistic development, especially since the Industrial Revolution. The use of iron, cast iron, steel changes not only the way to build, but to live. As well as town planning is not only land use planning but the principal of a rapidly changing society control tool. The book can also be read as a history of the modern movement, from the pioneers Eiffel, Sullivan until the mature works of its protagonists Gropius, Wright, Le Corbusier, Aalto , which Giedion, in addition to knowing personally, correlates with the contemporary artistic movements such as Futurism and Cubism.
