The Grammar Of Architecture
The Grammar of Architecture
Do you know a Doric column when you see one? Perhaps. But what about an entablature, a pylon, or a pagoda? THE GRAMMAR OF ARCHITECTURE uses beautifully engraved plates from the great works of architectural history to illustrate a show-and-tell journey around the architecture of civilizations east and west, from Ancient Egypt to the Industrial Revolution. Extended captions and annotations supply the reader with a complete naming of parts and an explanation of how architects have planned and made the buildings of the past, from Amhotep to the Palladio, and Vitruvius to Wren.
