This book is essentially a picture dictionary of architecture.
It is packed with line drawings of the best quality. It is very didactic and very straightforward.
The focus is on world architecture, so that every type of building gets a share of the book, and nothing is unduly left aside.
Essential to understand the basics of the concepts and rationale of architectural practice, thinking and theory.
Of value to both connoisseurs and practitioners.
