The Visual Dictionary Architectural Design Box Set contains three Visual Dictionaries which provide the reader with an enhanced understanding of over 750 key terms commonly used within architecture, interior design and photography. Each title contains historical and contemporary illustrations throughout. For architects and interior designers, photography and its language is a useful tool in terms of research. For photographers, an understanding of architectural styles - and the associated vocabulary - can be invaluable when discussing and analysing photographs of buildings and urban landscapes. The illustrations which accompany each definition, many of which are photographs, provide inspiration for new projects focusing on buildings and their interiors. Many of those who work within these fields will also find that they have a strong interest or skill in the other, as one thing architects, interior designers and photographers have in common is an ability to see possibilities in their surroundings. From 'fresco' to 'frieze', 'photogram' to 'perspective', this box set will prove an enjoyable and useful resource to all those interested in the applied visual arts. The three dictionaries come neatly presented in an arlin-covered slipcase.
