13 buildings you should know: knowledge, fun, and games with architecture
This book introduces 13 famous buildings that you should know, especially for children. Cleverly formatted information, photos, drawings, and a made-for-children glossary convey knowledge about the buildings and their architects. A timetable allows for easy historical orientation. Find the difference games, puzzles, and colouring exercises encourage participation and allow children to have fun discovering art.
Each architect is presented with a small portrait and photo (if possible). A short text, suitable for the target age group, conveys the most important information about the him and his work. Technical terms are marked and explained in the glossary. The art-historical, contemporary context is clearly displayed at the beginning of each entry with the help of a timeline. 2-3 major works by each architect, represented in beautiful illustrations, are accompanied by short, descriptive texts that help to bring the works to life. Games, quizzes, or coloring exercises provide additional motivation for active engagement with the pictures and texts. To satisfy more curious readers who would like to learn more about the buildings, relevant information about museums, further reading, and websites is also included.
