Overview

From ancient Greece to the present, the International Dictionary of Architects and Architecture presents a guided tour of 467 masterworks (including the Acropolis, Westminster Abbey, Burgos Cathedral, the Guggenheim Museum, Pushkino Palace and St. Peter's Basilica) and introduces readers to 523 Western architects, theorists and engineers as well as individuals involved in architectural decoration, landscape design and urban planning (Gustave Eiffel, Frank Lloyd Wright, Michelangelo, Le Corbusier and hundreds more).

In two richly illustrated volumes, the set contains 964 photographs and 169 floor plans of time-honored sites. Your patrons will be delighted to find many important structures and architects from areas of Eastern Europe that are difficult to find in most English-language reference books.
