Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

IF you want to know more about ar­chi­tec­ture but don’t have the time for in-depth study or seven years at univer­sity, then a new book, 30 Sec­ond Ar­chi­tec­ture, will prove use­ful.

It gives you the foun­da­tions of ar­chi­tec­tural knowl­edge, ex­plain­ing each con­cept us­ing 300 words and one pic­ture. Author Ed­ward Deni­son’s aim is to al­low read­ers to di­gest each sec­tion in just half a minute.

It elu­ci­dates on ev­ery­thing from the Byzan­tine and the Baroque to post­mod­ernism and ax­ono­met­ric pro­jec­tion. It re­veals why the built en­vi­ron­ment is a form of hu­man ex­pres­sion and why know­ing more about it will en­hance a walk through any town or city.

It is pub­lished by Ivy Press and costs £12.99.
