Understanding Architecture gives the first ever all-inclusive introduction to architecture and architectural history. Exceptional in its approach, it explores architecture as a current practice in relation to history and in relation to the wider context of cultures, conservation and the environment. This new edition brings in the new emphasis on sustainability, urbanism, urban regeneration and cultural identity, in order to take an holistic approach to the subject of architecture.
The aim of this book is to help people make sense of the experience of architecture and the built environment by understanding more about the form, construction, meaning and history of the subject. Highly illustrated, this will be of interest to students and all who are interested in architecture, architectural history, urban design, planning, conservation, interior design, heritage and tourism.
