Archi-Graphic: An Infographic Look at Architecture

By Frank Jacobus

Synopsis

This informative and engaging book uses inventive and visually stunning infographics to look at architecture in a way that would not be possible with words and images.

Through a variety of different infographics it compares, for example, the range of materials and colours used by different architects, the locations of their buildings, who influenced who, and which architects are the most discussed. It also takes a more unconventional approach with spreads that show the kinds of architecture favoured by dictators, the love affairs of architects and the defining facial features of famous architects.

Irreverent and entertaining, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in architecture or infographics.
