Great introductory read. Excellent overview I loved the illustrations It was great until the last chapter on vocabulary He should have skipped that I didn t really get the architectural puns if that is what those were and without illustrations it was useless I didn t finish that chapter I will get my vocabulary from a book I have already picked up that has illustrations.Onething I was unsure what the author s attitude toward Frank Lloyd Wright was He made a couple of comments about FLW and I didn t understand them Did he think FLW was over rated or under rated Although repetitive, accessible enough to understand as a novice to this field with sufficient content to stay engaged Seemed to bea teaching perspective initially then fell into almost stream of consciousness description of concepts in architecture Drawings were helpful in understanding written concepts definitions.
