Architecture: A Very Short Introduction

Architecture: A Very Short Introduction

Andrew Ballantyne


This hugely unique and complex examine structure is helping us to appreciate the cultural value of the constructions that encompass us. It avoids the normal style-spotting strategy and as an alternative supplies us an concept of what it truly is approximately constructions that strikes us, and what it really is that makes them vital artistically and culturally. The publication starts off through taking a look at how structure acquires that means via culture, and concludes with the exoticism of the new avant-garde interval. Illustrations of specific constructions support to anchor the overall issues with particular examples, from old Egypt to the current day.
