Review:

"an excellent resource for interested laypeople as well as professionals in the field...recommended as a ready-reference tool for public, academic, and high-school libraries" - Booklist "a fool-proof guide to understanding architectural elements: Ernest Burden's Dictionary of Architecture is long on illustration, a commendable fact given that most conventional architectural dictionaries many times leave one guessing as to meanings even after repeated readings of definitions. If you're ever a bit fuzzy as to the difference between a spandrel and a pendentive, Burden's 'point-and-shoot' approach and cross-referenced entries may prove invaluable in clearing up such gray areas of the field's nomenclature." - 4 star review on amazon.com

From the Back Cover:

“An excellent resource for interested laypeople as well as professionals in the field . . . recommended as a ready reference tool for public, academic, and highschool libraries.”

An Architectural Dictionary Written in the Language of Design. . . and Heavily Illustrated!

Unlike any other architectural dictionary currently available, the Illustrated Dictionary of Architecture,2e is focused almost entirely on design. While other design dictionaries are overloaded with construction-related terms, this unique resource contains nearly 4000 design-related definitions and more than 3000 illustrations – far more than any other dictionary.

The Illustrated Dictionary of Architecture covers everything critically important to those in the architect/design field:


* Architectural Styles
* Details
* Building Elements
* Forms
* Building Systems
* And added to this edition is more than 300 architect biographies with classic examples of their work

Meticulously written, heavily cross-referenced, and unique in the fact that it is a dictionary that can truly be called a visual resource, the Illustrated Dictionary of Architecture, 2e is the best way for any designer to gain a full understanding of architectural elements.
