The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture and Landscape Architecture



Need a handbook to your architect’s business or studies? Struggling with your latest DIY project? Interested in the art of architecture? This classic work, now in its fifth edition, covers every aspect of architecture and landscape architecture. Ranging from ancient times to contemporary trends, it adopts a truly international perspective, focussing on countries and cultures such as Coptic, Tibet and De Stijl.
Without doubt, this is the standard work in the field. As reflected by its new title, 'The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture and Landscape Architecture' has now been expanded to include recent developments in the field of landscape architecture. Full account has been taken, too, of the huge range of building traditions around the world. The text has been completely reset and all the illustrations redrawn.
'Immensely useful, succinct and judicious...this is a book rich in fact and accumulated wisdom.' The Times Literary Supplement

About the authors

John Fleming

Malcolm Hardee, 'The spiritual father of Alternative Comedy' Independent on Sunday, was born in Lewisham in 1950 and has been causing uproar ever since. In his youth he lead a life of petty crime and was in and out of prison for various misdemeanours including the theft of a cabinet minister's Rolls. After falling into comedy by accident he soon became a legend for his stunts - which include driving a tractor naked through the Edinburgh Festival - and nuturing of new talent from Vic Reeves to Harry Enfield. He runs the Up the Creek comedy club in Greenwich and lives on a floating pub, The Wibbley Wobbley, in Rotherhithe.
