3.0 out of 5 stars
not the book that you expect but...., 4 Dec 2001
This book was bought with current architecture and buildings in mind but covers everything from the year dot. Pyramids and the building of the great Roman empire to le corbusier design and the fantastic Seville airport. This would be a good book to buy for someone who was looking to study architecture but wanted a good base knowledge of the theory. The book is very well laid out and has just the right level of information. It is a good size for a backpack for reading when you get a chance - not just a book but a hive of information with little ditties added in about architects, buildings and good examples of photo's. It is also a nice reference book and quite inspirational to the architect in our house.
