Reviews

`a densely fascinating guide' Steven Poole, The Guardian Review `an excellent introduction to architecture ... one to recommend to students, friends and family, which is quite an achievement!' Robert Tavernor, University of Bath `There is really no better book out there. Ballantyne is a beautiful stylist, and the book combines intellegence with a completely beguiling wruterly style.' Sunday Herald (Glasgow) `will justify the ambition of every young and aspiring architect - but will also stimulate anyone at all curious about buildings ... Clear and jargon-less it shows how all buildings - good, bad and indifferent - are the truest indicators of the state of a society and of its culture.' Joseph Rykwert, University of Pennsylvania
