9780789327079: Discovering Architecture: How the World's Great Buildings Were Designed and Built

This exceptionally produced art book with die-cut windows, overlays, and blueprints identifies, decodes, and explains the world’s architectural masterpieces. Based on the successful format of Discovering the Great Masters, this is an accessible reference for anyone interested in great spaces and spectacular buildings and for anyone keen to know more about architecture. Each of the architectural works features clever overlays and die-cut windows that allow the reader to identify and focus on specific design elements. Each featured window includes a thoughtful caption explaining the significance of the highlighted area: building materials, historical context, and insights into the planning and architectural influences. Including such works as the Tower of London, Notre-Dame de Paris, and the Taj Mahal in India, the book is organized chronologically and presents buildings from all genres, covering more than two millennia of architectural history. In addition to the clever die-cut captions, each building is featured in an essay filled with essential information on the construction, as well as the social, political, cultural, and geographical considerations of the architect. Stunning photographs allow the reader to appreciate the technical feats and aesthetic brilliance of both the buildings and architects past and present.

About the Author:

Philip Jodidio was the editor in chief of the French art monthly Connaissance des Arts for more than twenty years. He is the author of more than 100 books on contemporary architecture, including Rizzoli’s I.M. Pei: The Complete Works and Tadao Ando: Venice. Elizabeth Dowling is professor emeritus at Georgia Tech University.

Review:

“Great architecture is memorable and often visually stunning. It is fitting, then that Discovering Architecture, itself embodies those same characteristics...gorgeous full-color photographs. Making the work more of a delight...the [die-cut window] effect is both extremely clever and highly functional, and it enhances the reader’s experience of paging through these masterpieces. This is indeed a work that can be pulled from the shelf again and again, and each time the reader is sure to marvel at how surpassingly well the built environment can be built.” ~Civil Engineering Magazine
 
"The 30 Best Art Books of 2013Discovering Architecture is a visual journey through the histories of 50 of the world's greatest buildings and the architects who imagined them. It's a must read.” ~The Huffington Post

“With 260 pages, this hardcover book offers plenty to explore: stunning photography, colorful illustrations and floor plans, die-cut overlays, and essays...” ~Archinect
