    I am not an architect and now I don t need to be I bought this book purely as a reference for my writing craft, and I am very glad I did so This is the Gray s Anatomy of architecture, if you will, presented in an easy to digest visual manner It takes some digging to find exactly what you want, because the book is organized so that taxonomic categories and theoretical ideas are interspersed in a way that doesn t always make sense, but, if it s architectural in any way, it s in there An extremely useful resource when trying to figure out exactly what it is your heroine is dangling from beneath the tentacled monster shambling toward her over the roof.

    Professor Francis D.K Ching s A Visual Dictionary of Architecture is the most useful tool I have found yet for understanding the descriptive terminology used in the diverse field of architecture It is general yet broad enough to be useful to students, architects, contractors, historians, preservationists, etc who have an interest in and or desire to know what to call the complex components of everyday as well as many common typology buildings The blend of visual imagery with short descriptions makes this book an invaluable reference in writing about architecture Not only are the illustrations gorgeous, but the explanations are succinct and comprehensible.The book is organized into 68 broad, basic architectural categories such as door, flooring, hardware, heat, plumbing, structure, etc that then have full page illustrations showing the diverse types of architectural details terms along with hand drafted drawings associated with the broader theme This allows for quick, comparative presentations of related but differentiated details Most users, however, will use the book as a back to front reference For this purpose, the rear index allows for quick reference in finding terms you want defined or clarified For example, perhaps you want to know if you should refer to a certain part of the building as a stoop, a porch, or a portico looking up any of these words will refer you to a page number under the umbrella category Building that illustrates and describes the various differences among the three terms I highly recommend this book if you plan to write about buildings, and or if you appreciate beautiful architectural illustrations as the latter suggests, it can double as a coffee table book.

    This is the most fantastic and complete architectural reference I have ever encountered.No one knows all the little, pedantic architectural terms you need to study the built world This book not only has all of them but is full of beautiful and informative illustrations Everyone who studies architecture students in art history, architecture, historic preservation and engineering should have a copy of this book on hand.Check it out from a library, see how useful it is and then go buy it.
