9782940411757: The Fundamentals of Architecture: Second Edition

Architecture is one of the most accessible and involving forms of art; a building or space is a physical presence that defines everyday experiences, affects mood, and becomes part of collective memory and cultural identity. An essential introduction, The Fundamentals of Architecture gives a comprehensive and engaging overview of architecture in its entirety, from creation to construction.
Beginning with a fascinating chapter on the history of architecture including a timeline of architectural influences, this new edition contains in-depth case studies, practical projects and carefully selected imagery. Alongside many images of recognizable and iconic buildings are lesser known examples of striking architectural design. All stages of the architectural process are considered, making this the perfect guide for anyone with an interest in architecture.
International examples range from cathedrals to airports; from La Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris to the Duomo in Florence; a conference centre in Glasgow to the Château de Versailles; the Reichstag Dome in Berlin to Kidosaki House in Tokyo; Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona to the Penguin Pool at London Zoo.
Eminent architects, from the classics to modern masters, are profiled next to their most famous works. Featured architects include: Filippo Brunelleschi,  Antoni Gaudi, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Carlo Scarpa, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Peter Zumthor, Louis Kahn and Richard Rogers.
Case studies span redesigning a university campus; designing a pavilion for the Shanghai Expo; reconstructing a museum; renovating an historic building; integrating with an urban landscape.
