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
