Architecture: A Crash Course
Hilary French (au). Why are buildings designed as they are? Where do architects get their ideas? This book has the answers to all of your questions about architecture. Assuming no previous architectural knowledge, the book: outlines lives & works of the key players; separates architecture from building; explains architectural styles & movements; & includes a glossary of terms & techniques. This is an illustrated guided tour around the world’s architectural heritage, stopping off to view majestic creations that have stood the test of time, & awesome failures. The book tells you how styles developed, why architects do the things they do, & how the designers of the present learn (or often don’t) the lessons of the past. Profusely illustrated.
