Summary

Written by an expert, 100 Ideas that Changed Architecture provides a concise history of the subject, and offers a fascinating resource to dip into for the general reader.

Starting with the basic building 'components' of door, window, column and beam and the Classical orders, this inspiring book goes on to explore historical architectural movements such as the Picturesque and Beaux-Arts, innovative materials such as steel and reinforced concrete, technical innovations, such as the lift and electric lighting, through to modern movements such as Universal Design and Deconstruction.

Arranged in a broadly chronological order, these architectural ideas are presented through informative text and arresting visuals, exploring when each idea first evolved and the subsequent impact it has had up to the present day.
