This illustrated introduction to the architecture of Cambridge uses selected examples of buildings from the Middle Ages to the present day as the basis for an investigation into architecture itself. The author describes the way in which buildings are composed, how they may in turn be "read," and introduces a number of levels of interpretation for those who may be unfamiliar with looking at buildings. Each chapter contains a map locating the examples discussed, and notes for further reading. The book is aimed at anyone interested in the history of architecture, and assumes no previous technical knowledge of the subject.
