The ABC's of architecture. From cave-dwelling to skyscraper, Louis Hellman, architect, cartoonist and RIBA gadfly, gives us the blueprint. Buildings are the 'art we live in', occupying our space, time and vision. Temples, pyramids, cathedrals, apartment-blocks and petrol stations. The styles, materials, inventions the good and the bad of architecture, are clearly explained. From Palladio to Le Corbusier, Bauhaus, town-planners, bureaucrats and commuters. Past, present and maybe a future!
