5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to architecture, 18 Sep 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: Great Architecture of the World (Paperback)
As a licensed architect, I'm often asked to talk to children or teenagers who are vaguely interested in architecture. (Well, not that often, but it has happened.) I've been recommending this book for years. It has lots of full-color cutaway drawings. Let me put it this way, if you don't stare fascinated at these drawings, you probably won't be drawn to architecture. My copy of the book is hardcover, printed in 1975, but it's politically correct--Chinese and Hindu architecture is not neglected as in other Western-focused books. You won't find any post-modernism here, however, because I don't think the paperback has been updated (but I might be wrong).

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An in depth, thick book full of high quality and informative illustrations. I definitely recommend this product for those whose interests lie in architecture, design, concept art and similar fields.
