Product Description

Review

It is the only dictionary that provides concise, accurate definitions illustrated with finely detailed, hand-rendered drawings . (Ad-Hoc-News, 22 November 2011)

From the Back Cover

Presented in Francis D.K. Ching's signature style, this long-awaited Second Edition of A Visual Dictionary of Architecture is a remarkable, one-of-a-kind compendium that combines textual definitions and hundreds of superb line drawings to illuminate a comprehensive body of essential terms in architecture, including important interrelationships between building components. Grouped by themes, such as history, systems, structures, forms, construction, environmental issues, and behavior, all terms have their visual complement and can be readily accessed in a number of different ways.

Whether you're an architect, interior designer, construction practitioner, or simply interested in the field of architecture, A Visual Dictionary of Architecture, Second Edition provides an authoritative source of information for tracking down an elusive word—and a delight for simple armchair browsing.

Anything by Ching is an astounding combination of jaw dropping graphics, good and concise information, and a reminder why we all went into architecture.

A handy book for your technical library. This book covers most of the components of a building (the general aspects, at least).
