Seconds to become architecture expert
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.
