Dictionnaire amoureux de l’architecture (architecture dictionary)
Jean-Michel Wilmotte, a passionate architect, talks to us here about both the profession he practises and the masterpieces that this art has created since Antiquity. He evokes the traces that architecture has left around us, looking not only at the architecture of his own time, but also at that of yesterday and elsewhere.
From the atmosphere of a few large cities to that of remote villages with unusual architecture, from famous monuments to modest buildings that are sometimes little known but which have deserved to attract his attention. From Brunnelleschi to Le Corbusier, from Wright to Niemeyer. This book spans the centuries and continents. It is characterised by the richness and diversity of the view.
