4.0 out of 5 stars Don't know your piloti from your pebble-dash?, 27 Mar 2012
This review is from: Reading Architecture: A Visual Lexicon (Paperback)
This is an excellent book and it does do exactly what it says. Such a lexicon is long overdue. How many times has the student (or perhaps even the tutor!) been embarassed to admit that they really can't remember what that particular detail is called, which period it is from or which order it relates to. You could spend hours looking through your dusty copy of Bannister-Fletcher but why bother (and this venerable tome is short on references to pebble-dash anyway)this well-written, well-designed and presented book is all you will need to understand the fundamental visual language of architecture, from the classical to the contemporary. An excellent introduction for all those interested in what makes our built environment.Basics Interior Architecture 05: Texture + Materials

I teach history of art and architecture, and I find this a very helpful book for technical terms. It is well illustrated and thoughtfully presented.

This review is from: Reading Architecture: A Visual Lexicon (Paperback)
Great simple book just what I was looking for to learn the specific architectural lingo used for specific and historical design details in architecture.
Happened upon it in a well known book store which couldn't compete on the amazon price.
Arrived as described on time and has been put to good use.
