FINALLY! AN ARCHITECTURAL DICTIONARY WRITTEN IN THE LANGUAGE OF DESIGN...
Unlike any other architectural dictionary available, this resource is the only one focusing almost entirely on design. While other similar resources are filled with construction-related terms, the ILLUSTRATED DICTIONARY OF ARCHITECTURE, Second Edition contains more than 4000 design-related definitions and more than 3000 illustrations--far more than any other dictionary.
ILLUSTRATED DICTIONARY OF ARCHITECTURE, Second Edition contains architectural styles, details, building elements, and forms--everything important to the architect/designer. Added to the new edition are more than 300 architect biographies with classic examples of their work.
