☆ Overlook the 3,000 years of architecture and learn about the other side of human history

The story of architecture traces the 3,000 years of human architecture vertically, from the beginning of primitive people living in caves to avoid the attack of wild beasts, to the end of the 21st century when British architects built grass brick houses in harmony with nature, forming a perfect closed loop, implying the fate of architectural history and human history.

The unusual story behind each heirloom building once again draws the reader into the big era of twists and turns, overlooking the evolution of architectural genres and the changes of the times.

☆ Wide-format full-color cross-sectional drawings illustrate buildings, and use architectural language to understand buildings

16 heirloom buildings, 16 full-color wide-format cross-sectional drawings, 16 in-depth stripping of the architectural fabric, and 16 private guided tours. The contour drawing of the building drawn in equal proportions makes the building structure appear in a subtle way, and the carefully inserted legend deciphers the architectural language, allowing the reader to experience the genius inspiration of the builder.

Architecture is a solidified note of the times, mastering the language of architecture to read the world we live in.

☆ Thread the needle in the macro perspective to present amazing details about architecture and architectural history

The book contains both imposing macro narratives: the turbulent background of the times, the spiral evolution of architectural genres, the past and present lives of 16 heirloom buildings, the impact of the Renaissance, the aesthetic revolution and the industrial revolution on architecture, as well as the laying out of microscopic details. Advances in technology: bricklaying, air-conditioned floor heating in the Roman era, sewer systems, arches, concrete, elevators, mesh shell structures, etc., key figures influencing the school of architecture: Imhotep, Bishop Maurice, Andrea Palladian, etc., several movements of cultural change that have influenced greatly, etc., all these details will lead the reader into the familiar and unfamiliar world of architecture.

☆ 人类缔造了建筑,同时建筑也改变了人类

每一座建筑都寄托了建造者的梦想和希望。人类既是建筑的缔造者,同时也为建筑所改变。建筑一经建造,便拥有了自己的命运。它们承接了人类的喜怒哀乐、悲欢离合,见证了历史的纵横捭阖、帝王将相成王败寇。读懂建筑的故事,读懂我们人类从哪来,又将到哪里去。

◎ 内容简介

从稻草屋到摩天大楼,从宫殿到艺术中心,《建筑的故事》带我们进行了横穿世界大洲穿越数十世纪的建筑之旅。帕特里克·狄龙(Patrick Dillon)选择了世界上16座最具代表性的建筑,包括帕帕特农神庙,巴黎圣母院,泰姬陵,紫禁城,包豪斯学校,水晶宫,悉尼歌剧院和蓬皮杜中心等,并讲述了每栋建筑背后非凡的故事。

斯蒂芬·比斯蒂(Stephen Biesty)细致微观的剖面图让我们看到这些令人难以置信的建筑结构,并欣赏建筑的创作者的天才灵感。图例和拉页中还详细解释了结构名称和建筑术语,本书末尾还附有一个索引与建筑大事记时间表。

这是一部真正具备全球化视野的建筑史,展出来自北美洲,欧洲,非洲,亚洲,大洋洲亚的经典建筑。

◎ 媒体评价

该书既有基本建筑概念的清晰解释,例如拱券、拱门、圆顶、钢筋混凝土等等,也有对称、几何、建筑模式等抽象原理的阐述。斯蒂芬·比斯蒂精心描绘、图例清晰的剖面图将每个章节做出划分,剖面图让读者有了一个如万花筒但又紧密集成的视觉维度,为读者进行了知名建筑的翻译解读。——《美国图书馆期刊》(School Library Journal)星级评鉴

世界上16座传世建筑的高光时刻……斯蒂芬·比斯蒂用彩铅画出了更细腻的线条,丰富的细节。如果愿意的话,读者甚至可以精确数出紫禁城太和殿的阶梯数。每张剖面图都有详尽但丝毫不破坏构图的图例解释……文本部分讲述了建筑营建过程中的故事,将读者重新带回了那些遥远的时代。引人入胜的剖面图和明晰的章节划分让读者可以从任何一个喜欢的部分开始阅读。图书末尾还附有索引和建筑大事记时间表。——《号角杂志》(The Horn Book) 星级评鉴

这本书对世界建筑进行了入门介绍,非常适合有志成为建筑师的孩子,书里还有比斯蒂引人注目的剖面图。——《环球邮报》(The Globe and Mail)

这本大开本、美观、内容丰富的图书用历史逸闻和精美的剖面图,将从古代到现代的重要建筑完美呈现。剖面图大师斯蒂芬·比斯蒂的彩色铅笔图为读者提供了良好的比例感,完美在纸上再现建筑的宏伟壮观。通过他标志性的剖面图,还可以看到室内和建筑的细节。——《书单杂志》(Booklist)

最经典的建筑从来不仅仅是粗糙建筑结构的总和,它们满足着建造者的实用需求,更承载着建造者的想象和梦想。斯蒂芬·比斯蒂精准地捕捉到了这些建筑物所具备的难以捉摸的特点,用精美的插图再现了这些传世建筑的辉煌。在精心绘制的页面上,10~16岁的读者(以及他们的父母)可以沿着从古代到现代的时间线探索著名建筑。这本书是献给与人类史相伴随的建筑颂歌,极具可读性。——《华尔街日报》 (The Wall Street Journal)
