About the Authors
  • Cambridge Architecture offers a brief, illustrated introduction to the architecture of Cambridge, using selected examples of buildings from the Middle Ages to the present day as the basis for an investigation into architecture itself. The author describes the way in which buildings are composed, and how they may in turn be 'read', and introduces a number of levels of interpretation to those who may be unfamiliar with looking at buildings. Issues of iconography, questions of ethics, and the ways in which architecture may mirror society or indicate significant changes of taste are all touched upon. The examples chosen are treated chronologically, but with frequent cross-referencing. Each chapter contains a map, locating the examples discussed, and notes for further reading. The book is aimed at anyone interested in the history of architecture, and assumes no previous technical knowledge of the subject.

    • An original contribution to the architectural history of a great university city
    •  Written by an expert with local knowledge
    • Genuinely authoritative introduction into ways of looking at architecture
