Fortunately, this was indeed the case. The book is hard-backed, and very well designed and produced. There are a number of informative sections such as:
Foundations - (Glossary, historical types such as Roman, Islamic, Gothic, Byzantine etc)
Key Innovations - (Arch, dome, vault, buttress, beam etc)
Projection - (Elevation, angles etc)
Theories/Concepts - (Aesthetics, voids etc)
Ideas/Movements - (Modernism, Avant-garde, post-modernism etc)
Styles - (Baroque, Orientalism, Brutalism and so on)
Future - (CAD design, sustainable architecture etc)
Both myself and the teenager found it to be very informative, as no more than two pages are spent on each point, it lists a summary of, for example ‘An Arch’, along with some bullet-points of further information and plenty of diagrams, drawings and photos.
Highly recommended as a brief overview of architecture in general, and will certainly open your eyes to the architecture of cities and towns as you walk or drive through them.
