excellent (and opinionated) survey 8 septembre 2003
Par Robert J. Crawford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
THis is a very, very good introduction to the complexities of architecture, at about the freshman level of college. Starting with the dawn of civilization (in what is now Iraq), Glancey takes the reader on a tour of human history from the angle of what we build to worship, work, and live in. THe basics are covered extremely well, providing a context for further research.
Glancey writes with grace and clarity, dividing each major movement into regular cuts of two pages, each with brilliant images. While this format shoehorns things into categories that are a bit too sharply delineated, that kind of reductionism is a necessity in this kind of survey. In the latter part of the book, some of the distinctions appear artificial, but then we are in a period where no dominating style - you get post-modern, decontructivist, and organic, etc. - has emerged and the author had to make some decisions regarding how to put them in the format. To his credit, Glancey does not ignore the exceptions and quirks.
One thing I enjoyed about the book is that Glancey does not shy away from making strikingly loud judgements, many of which I did not share. Corbusier, he writes, "was the most inventive and poetic architect who ever lived." Now that is strong stuff and I would never have expected it in a routine survey! (While I can respect and understand what Corbusier did, I don't love it like Glancey.) But that is what makes this book more than a run of the mill overview - it adds flavor and stimulates. Also, while international, because Glancey is a Brit, much of it focuses on Britain and contemporary Europe, which provides a valuable contrast to more US-centric views.

new architecture student 18 janvier 2001
Par Amanda Cannon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a freshman architecture student, this book was exactly at my level. The photographs are splendid, and the dialogue informative. This book provides a complete history of architecture in every area of the world, as well as some theory. Great for anyone truly interested in architecture, but not an expert (yet!)

Fine introduction. 6 août 2005
Par Steven Larsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was looking for a readable inroduction to varied styles and history of architecture that was jargon free but not overly simplified. This book did the job well. Perhaps Glancey could have provided a bit more text to go along with the beautiful pictures, but he still informs.

Recommended for newcomers or those with an incomplete education in the field of architecture.

Great buy 7 septembre 2011
Par ChadScience3e8 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Arrived in good time and good condition. The book is filled with great images of architectural pieces, and the chapters are relatively short and to the point. Easy to read, filled with good historical information.
Beautiful affordable, used book, excellent publisher (DK). 13 juillet 2014
Par laricher23 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Beautiful book well worth the less than $5 (included shipping) that I spent on a 'used' (not a mark on it) Goodwill paper copy. Some books are still better viewed on paper rather than via electronic means and this is one of them. The books published by DK are gorgeous but are far more expensive electronically. The HD pictures for tablet or computer are beautiful and in some cases worth the extra expense but don't waste the money on phone versions. You can't see the pictures well enough.
