Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887766064, Hardcover)

Named a 5th– 6th Grade Honor Book by the Austin Young Engineer’s Award 2003-2004


From old favorites like Monticello, Falling Water, and the Chrysler Building, to lesser-known treasures like Bernard Maybeck’s First Church of Christ, Scientist (in Berkeley, California), the buildings that Janice Weaver presents tell the story of a nation and its people. Traveling through almost four hundred years of history – and to all four corners of the continental United States – Building America explores an architecture that is as diverse as the people who created it. Complete with timeline, glossary, and index, this fine introduction to architecture is splendidly illustrated by Bonnie Shemie’s detailed paintings.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:55:27 -0400)

Examines nearly four hundred years of architecture in the United States, discussing the architectural and cultural significance of dozens of buildings.
