Product Description
 
How to build a more beautiful and liveable worldHow to build a more beautiful and liveable world
Children are rarely introduced properly to architecture, but there are in fact few subjects more important - because the quality of the architecture that surrounds us has such an impact on our mood and sense of well-being.

The bitter truth is that in modern times, we've built a world that's far too often ugly or uncharming - and we've done so because only a very few people ever feel they have the right to comment on what gets built around them. This is a chance for the next generation to develop the tools to talk about architecture with confidence, knowledge and passion. It tells us about what a satisfying building is, what makes a street enticing (or not), why some cities are charming and others repel us - and how we might build going forward in a way that will reliably delight and uplift us.

This engaging and beautifully illustrated guide is designed to help children (and their favourite adults) to understand how buildings work and how we might create the better looking world we all crave and deserve.
