Encyclopaedia of Architectural Terms

Hardback
The study of architecture requires not only an understanding of the history of buildings, but also knowledge of the correct terminology that is used to describe them. The Encyclopaedia of Architectural Terms provides a comprehensive, clearly written, practical guide to the terminology used in the various aspects of architecture and building. It contains over 3500 terms offering definitions of styles, the components of buildings, materials, the various parts of orders and architectural details.
