Produced in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects and the University of London, the landmark new edition of this iconic reference work includes:
Bloomsbury Architecture Library features over 40 eBooks from a fast-growing, forward-thinking list of architecture books on topics ranging from architecture and architectural history, to theory, design, urbanism, landscape, and interiors. The collection features leading scholars and books that appeal to all levels, from introductory texts for students, to guides for practising architects and designers.
Individual building pages bring together the most essential information about the world's most important buildings all in one place.
These pages include a building's location, dates, architects/designers, building type and key materials. It also includes images and short descriptive text, plus useful links through to the rest of the resource.
From abacus to ziyada, the Sir Banister Fletcher Glossary contains over 900 key architectural terms, clearly explained and defined. Taken from Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture, the glossary covers a complete range of technical, design, and historical terms, including non-English language vocabulary, and serves both as a core reference resource and an invaluable primer to enhancing the reader’s understanding of global architectural history.
