Reviews
"For those wanting a foundation course in architecture, [Pearman's] book is perfect, and sure to stimulate extensive further study of an art form that embraces us wherever we go."--Simon Heffer, The Telegraph

​"Hugh Pearman's keen eye and encyclopaedic knowledge combine to make a book with universal appeal--as fascinating for a lay audience, as for those who study or practice architecture. It is a lightning tour of history--a sheer delight!"--Norman Foster

​​"Told through a hand-picked selection of some of the world's most unique and innovative buildings, this is a pacey and elucidative insight into just how formative architecture is to society. Sitting at the intersection of art and science, the history of buildings is really the history of people, and Hugh Pearman deftly brings that history to life."--Maria Balshaw

​​​"A wonderfully riveting book that illuminates the work of some of the world's most audacious architects."--Cornelia Parker

​​​​"About Architecture is an insightful book that provides a deeper understanding of the canons that have informed and shaped the world as we know it."--David Adjaye
