This book is a guide to the many and varied terms used frequently within architecture. From Column to Cornice, Skyscraper to Ha-Ha, this book will prove an invaluable resource to anyone interested in architecture. Each term is explained and contextualised, giving the reader an enhanced understanding of architectural terminology. More than 270 common architecture terms are distilled and illustrated. From practical terms such as Vaulted, Spire and Cladding to conceptual terms such as Modernism and Postmodernism, including modern terminology and many of the traditional terms still in current usage.
