100 Ideas that Changed Architecture [9781786275677]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This inspiring book chronicles the most influential ideas that have shaped architecture. Entertainingly written by an expert on architecture, it provides a concise history of the subject, and offers a fascinating resource to dip into for the general reader.

Starting with the basic building 'components' of door, window, column and beam and the Classical orders, it then goes on to explore historical movements such as the Picturesque and Beaux-Arts, innovative materials such as steel and reinforced concrete, technical innovations, such as the lift and electric lighting, through to modern movements such as Universal Design and Deconstruction.

Arranged in a broadly chronological order, the ideas are presented through informative text and arresting visuals, exploring when each idea first evolved and the subsequent impact it has had up to the present day.
AUTHOR: Richard Weston was Professor of Architecture at Cardiff University. His books include the monograph Alvar Aalto, winner of the 1995 Sir Banister Fletcher Prize; the definitive monograph on the Danish architect Jorn Utzon; Materials, Form and Architecture and Key Buildings of the Twentieth Century, 2nd edition.
