Comments From Mud Huts to Skyscrapers

  • Jenny

    A great introduction to the variety of architectural styles spanning from before 10,000 B.C. to modern times. Each period includes a brief description of the characteristics of that style, an illustration of an example of a building created in that style and then numbered information corresponding to the illustration to give further detail about characteristics and features of that building and/or style. It's not really a book to read in one sitting, but even for someone that isn't that interest [...]

    EXCELLENT resource for children to learn about architecture throughout history and in different parts of the world. A LARGE book to really captivate the readers and demonstrate the glory of all kinds of structures. Simply a lovely book to learn from.

    Age: 3rd-7th gradeNonfiction: ArchitectureStarting with structures built before 10,000 B.C Paxmann provides kids with a tremendous introduction to architectural styles, focusing primarily on 1900-modern day. This might be better suited for free reading, but Paxmann infuses her text with popular figureheads, terminology, and figures without becoming too academic. The illustrations are also sublime sometimes providing people for scale (although the Baroque period people are definitely not to scale [...]

    When you walk into our home you are greeted with a large painting of Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia. The image of La Sagrada on the front of this book is what initially caught my eye while perusing books with my son in the Youth section of the library. The pleasant surprise is that this volume is not only a great education tool for older elementary aged kids; but it's also a great refresher for those, like myself, with a passing interest in architecture. The illustrations were great. The explanation [...]

    Wonderful, terrific book, a one-volume introduction to architecture. The illustrations are splendid. The section on 20th and 21st century architecture is very strong with the Chrysler building, The Bauhaus, Ronchamp, Guggenheim, Sydney Opera House, Hundertwasser's Hill Houses, Guggenheim Bilbao, and the Kunsthaus Graz in Austria. The details are engrossing. Middle school nonfiction, suitable for older children and adults as well. A real treasure,books on architecture for youth are difficult to f [...]

    By far the best book on architecture written for children that I've ever seen. This would be a great introduction to architectural history even for a curious adult. Paxmann does a good job in her selection of buildings. Her artistic and technical explanations aren't "dumbed down" but are still understandable. I also liked her illustrations and her inclusion of interesting facts that would appeal to kids. Loved this book!

    Architecture is a visible chronicle of human history. In this large-format book 25 iconic buildings and periods are illuminated. Intricate watercolors and precise yet accessible text describe the structures and the people and cultures that created them, taking the reader on a journey through time. A timeline with thumbnails and a glossary are included.


  • Lindsay

    Okay, this may have taken me eons to finish but that's because it was so cool I kept wanting to stop and google the real structures.
