13 Architects Children Should Know

Open a door into the fascinating world of architecture with 13 Architects Children Should Know, a lively and engaging volume in the much-loved Children Should Know series.

Inside these pages, children are introduced to history's most iconic architectural feats and the people behind them. Buildings of every shape and size from every corner of the world are included.

In lively illustrated spreads, young readers learn how Christopher Wren reconstructed an 11th century cathedral after London’s Great Fire of 1666 to become the St Paul's Cathedral that we know today, and how its dome survived the Blitz. They find out how Thomas Jefferson, in building his plantation, Monticello, created a new architecture for a new nation. They are introduced to the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Zaha Hadid, to name a few, and can examine in detail the wonders of the Eiffel Tower, the Guggenheim Bilbao, and Rome’s most beautiful museum.

The book proceeds chronologically, accompanied by a timeline to provide historical context. Each architect's entry includes a concise biography, illustrations of major works, and lively texts that speak directly to young readers. Additional information about the buildings pictured, suggestions for further reading, and supplemental online resources are all included.
