about

The Architectural Review is a multi-volume magazine of architecture and design intended for both professionals and those with a casual interest, with articles ranging from highly technical to those highlighting areas of popular interest in design. Volume 49 includes over fifty detailed articles and over one hundred magnificent illustrations intended to educate and excite a quickly growing audience. Along the same vein, the magazine does not limit itself to simply examining the architecture of buildings; it also explores the design of furniture and discusses contributions of individual artists to both architecture and design in an attempt to broaden their readership and bring the magic of architecture to a new audience.

This volume covers a wide range of buildings from the most basic single-family units to some of the most ostentatious and glamorous structures ever built: from cathedrals and castles to simple homes in the English countryside. This volume explores the Piazza Venesia in Rome, the Christ Church in Oxford, and the Palace of the Popes at Avignon, as well as the Royal Society for the Arts. In addition, there are articles dedicated to individuals in creative fields such as Mr. Henry T. Hare and Sir Charles Harry. Articles on garden design and museums that either are architecturally significant or cover areas of interest to the architecturally inclined help lighten some of the more technical content and make the magazine more approachable for the casual reader. One particularly approachable feature is on the use of stained glass in both architecture for public buildings and as an accent in private residences. The magazine proves over and over again that no topic is considered too tangential as they highlight racing yacht interiors and one on English furniture exhibited at the Burlington Fine Arts Club, as well as important artists in a variety of different fields.

According to The Architectural Review every man-made structure has both beauty and merit and design is something that can be appreciated by anyone, regardless of professional expertise. The publication explores all facets of building and design and pays equal attention to both the good and the bad in each creation. An interesting read for students of architecture and design or an interesting read for individuals who enjoy architecture and want to know more about building decoration.
