"For more than thirty years, The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture has been a standard work of reference." "Encyclopedic in breadth, it describes key individuals, styles, movements, materials, and terms from Aalto to Zakharov, from the Acropolis to ziggurats. Major entries range up to several pages in length and include cross references and bibliographies for further reading." "Now renamed The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, this new edition has been completely reworked by John Fleming and Hugh Honour. All entries have been updated as necessary, many new ones have been written, and much greater prominence has now been given to landscape architecture, one of the most dynamic and important growth fields of recent years."--Jacket

In this Revised Seventh Edition, contemporary art historian Michael Archer has brought the account of contemporary art up to date, reflecting the latest developments that continue to shape out cultural history."--Amazon
