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 (second edition) gives a comprehensive and engaging overview of architecture in its entirety, from creation to construction. 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.
