What is Architecture?: And 100 Other Questions

Available

Description

This entertaining and informative book explores the world of architecture through a series of 101 questions and answers that cover a wide range of issues on its practice and theory. There are historical questions, such as 'Who was the first architect?' and 'Are all churches architecture?' as well as ones that relate to contemporary activity, such as 'Have computers changed architecture?' or 'How small can a home be?'. There are also many that are intriguing and irreverent, such as 'Why do architects want to paint the world white?' and 'Is Dubai a city?'.

For each of the questions there is a brief, one-line answer and then a more extended discussion. Aimed at both general readers as well as those in the field, this book will make a perfect purchase or gift for anyone interested in architecture.
