Archi-Graphic: An Infographic Look at Architecture
By: Frank Jacobus (author)Paperback
This informative and engaging book uses inventive and visually stunning infographics to take an unusual look at architecture in a way that would not be possible with words and images. Through a variety of different infographics it compares, for example, the range of materials and colours used by different architects, the relative locations of their buildings, who influenced who, and which architects are the most discussed. It also approaches architecture from more unconventional angles with spreads that show the kinds of architecture favoured by dictators, the networks of love affairs that architects got entangled in, and the defining facial features of famous architects. Irreverent and entertaining, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in architecture or infographics.
Frank Jacobus is Assistant Professor at the Faye Jones School of Architecture, University of Arkansas.
