Details

From Stonehenge to the Thames barrier, this text celebrates the diversity of Britain's architecture. Roger Fitzgerald has traversed Britain painting as wide a range of buildings as possible. His watercolours illustrate the visual variety in the buildings throughout Britain, both ancient and modern. The book explores the uses of buildings from monastries to coal mines, museums to lighthouses, and looks at how they interact with their surroundings. Architecture of all shapes and forms is displayed in the study of individual buildings, which shows the changing styles as they occur around Britain. The final part of the book examines different building materials, detail and decoration. Also discussed is the use of timber, thatch, stone and brick, as well as more contemporary glass and concrete.
