Learn all about the world of architecture in only 100 words! This book explores the most iconic buildings from around the world as well as the history of architecture, from basic huts to incredible skyscrapers.  

From columns to pyramids, each of the carefully chosen 100 words has its own 100-word long description and colorful illustration, providing a fascinating introduction to amazing architecture from throughout history.

From the familiar to the jaw-dropping, the medieval to ultra-modern, this is an inspiring look at some of architecture’s greatest developments.

With a clean, contemporary design, each word occupies a page of its own. A large striking illustration neatly encapsulates the accompanying 100 words of text.

A fascinating introduction to cool buildings in a fun and accessible format, this is the perfect gift for aspiring architects or curious young minds!

My Review 


This book absolutely blew me away. 100 Things to Know About Architecture covers a wide range of the world of architecture with everything from building types, types of designs to famous buildings and architects. A wonderful guide for budding architects recommended for ages 5-8 but as a parent I also learned some very interesting facts and really enjoyed the book. I loved the illustrations and thought the explanations on each page were well thought out and interesting. My only note would be that I would have loved to see the book done in categories like types of buildings, landmarks, architects as I found it jumped around a little but each page was like a surprise.

100 Things to Know About Architecture will certainly be added to our family library to enjoy for many years! 🙂
