From the Publisher:


Look up. Look around. There's architecture everywhere,
from the homes in which we live to the buildings where we work, the historical
sites we visit on vacation and the shopping malls we frequent on a daily basis.
But what exactly is architecture and what differentiates it from mere buildings?
How does it impact our lives? In this engaging, original work, architects Max
Jacobson and Shelley Brock explore these and many other questions as they
present a compelling case for the importance of architecture in our day-to-day
lives. Durability, utility, and beauty are the three pillars on which
Invitation to Architecture
is built. These three concepts (originally coined
by Vitruvius during the Roman empire as Firmitas, Utilitas, and Venustas) remain
at the heart of what architecture strives for and are as relevant today as they
were over 2,000 years ago."
