Experienced professional architect Ernest Burden has compiled a wealth of architectural material, including style, from antiquity to the present; building types, design and composition; materials, building parts and elements; and architectural form. And all listings are alphabetical - making searching and cross-referencing easy.
Most entries include a b&w photograph that illustrates the element (or several photographs showing variations of the element) as well as its position within a structure. In addition to structural components, entries describe new technical terms and intangible aspects including terms relating to building renovation and restoration as well as aspects of the design and building process. Definitions of related elements, such as types of arches, doors, joints, moldings, roofs, walls, or windows, are clustered under one category. These grouped definitions also listed in the index for easy location. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
