This review is from: The Picture History of Great Buildings (Paperback)
This really is an excellent book, which will appeal to both children and adults. Starting with the earliest buidlings, such as the Step Pyramid and the Parthenon, it brings us right up to date with the discussion of eco-friendly and sustainable buildings. Prages on individual buildings are interspersed with general (and fascinating) articles about different periods and architectural styles.Detailed illustrations and maps form an important and attractive part of the book. There is a comprehensive glossary, which is excellent for those who want to gain a basic understanding of architecture. The timeline which runs right through the book is excellent for putting buildings into context, for learning what else was going on at the same time and gaining insight into society through the ages.
