From Amazon.com: This book traces the earliest history of architecture at its birthplace in the ancient Middle East (primarily the current Iran and Iraq) and ancient Egypt, and covers archeological sites, temples, tombs, and early dwellings - several of which have been the subject of recent news coverage on sites and treasures threatened by the Iraq war and political instability.

Reviewed by Francesca: This book is rated the classic reference on Ancient Egyptian building techniques. It covers all aspects of construction from mathematical procedures to the ways the Ancient Egyptians drilled granite and other hard stones. Various buildings and pyramids are picked out as examples for diverse techniques as well as for the purpose of providing insight into how they were built. Although getting out of date with more information having been gathered during the past 60-odd years, it is well worth reading and having as a handy reference.

Reviewed by Francesca: The first part of this album on ancient Egyptian art presents the author and his passion for Egyptology. The second part consists of plates, representing drawings and outlines of pillars, vases, portraits, columns, niches, plans, and patterns among many others. This is a good reference to the art and architecture of ancient Egypt.

book coverLes Pharaons Bâtisseurs
Henri Stierlin
ISBN 2879390621
© 1992 Éditions Pierre Terrail
Categories :  Architecture  
From AEB: Dès 2 800 avant J.C. et pendant trois millénaires, la vallée du Nil, du Delta jusqu'à la Nubie, fut un immense chantier sous la conduite de pharaons-dieux. Pyramides, temples, tombeaux, chapelles, magasins, palais, forteresses, toutes ces constructions, parfois colossales, participent d'un même esprit qui leur confère un caractère unique.
