Description: From Aalto to ziggurat, this new work offers an authoritative and accessible guide to architecture and its history. With over 5,000 entries -- twice as many as its nearest competitor -- it provides extensive coverage of all periods of Western architectural history, from ancient times to the present day, in styles ranging from Assyrian architecture to Flemish Mannerism.

With entries spanning from the commonplace to the less well known, this dictionary aims to cover as wide a range of architectural terms as possible in unaccessible style. Curl has included over 250 attractive illustrations, which add vital visual information to entries on topics such as the arch or the cross. There are also longer entries which explain the different schools of architecture -- from Bauhaus to the Federal Style -- and put them in their historical context. Biographical entries are provided for a great number of architects from the ancients to leading figures of today. From Brunelleschi and Gropius to LeCorbusier and Brunel, each entry outlines the architect's importance and gives examples of their most notable buildings.

Comprehensive and up to date, this book will prove to be an indispensable guide to anyone interested in architecture and its history. It is ideal, for students and professional architects, as well as general readers.
