A fun-filled way to learn about architectural history, this activity book allows young readers to build their own structures using simple but classic shapes and designs.
Want to make an ionic column? How about a cathedral with flying buttresses? Or a mishmash of frills, domes, pillars and arches that could only exist in your imagination? With more than 200 stickers that reflect every important era of architectural history, this book encourages children to create buildings that can be historically accurate or completely whimsical. Along the way it tells the story of architecture as we know it—from ancient Greece through the modern era—and offers the elements of different styles and structures. A handson learning experience, this delightful book shows children how architecture works and how it has evolved over time.
