This informative and engaging book uses a variety of inventive
infographics to take an unusual look at architecture in a way that would
not be possible with words and images alone. Through a variety of
different infographics it compares, for example, the range of materials
and colours used by different architects, the relative locations of
their buildings, who influenced who, and which architects are the most
discussed. It also approaches architecture from more unconventional
angles with spreads that show the kinds of architecture favoured by
dictators, the networks of love affairs that architects got entangled
in; the defining facial features of famous architects and so on.
Irreverent and entertaining, this book will appeal to all those with an
interest in architecture or infographics.
