Now in full color--a thoroughly updated edition of the premier illustrated architectural dictionary
Revised and expanded, the Illustrated Dictionary of Architecture, Third Edition, features 8,000 definitions, 4,000 illustrations, and biographies of hundreds of architects accompanied by classic examples of their work. This new, full-color edition includes terms relating to green, ecological, and sustainable architecture. Everything critically important to those in the field of architecture and design is covered, including:
Meticulously written, heavily cross-referenced, and filled with more than 3,000 new and updated definitions and 1,000 new photographs, this impressive visual resource is the best way to gain a full understanding of architectural elements and the new language of green and sustainable architecture.
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.
