Do you have an aspiring architect in your home? Archi-doodle: An Architect's Activity Book is a brainy, interactive way to learn about architecture. Bursting with a collection of beautiful and elegant drawings, including numerous examples by major architects, it will challenge your older child to complete a variety of tasks, from designing a beach hut to determining a location for an island house or creating a new look for Buckingham Palace.
Designed for the child that loves architecture, Archi-doodle introduces a large range of significant architectural subjects, such as the importance of site and materials, how to furnish a space, how to read plans, how to create sustainable cities, and so on. It will inspire your child to draw remarkable and appealing buildings he otherwise might not have designed.
Not a textbook nor anything of that ilk, Archi-Doodle is an enjoyable book to jumpstart your child’s creativity. Each page explores a different theme on the subject of architecture: types of buildings, building elements, environments, spaces, and so much more, in no particular order. Plus your child can begin Archi-Doodle without knowing anything about architecture and end it by designing an actual “award he would be happy to receive” because he has completed the book – fun! Archi-Doodle will provide your child with a broad introduction to architecture in a very illuminating way. Because of the complexity of the assignments in Archi-Doodle, we suggest this book for ages 10 and older.
Very, Very Tiny Disclaimer
Note, on the page that shows beach hut architecture, there is what could appear to be a sketch of a topless woman. Given that this sketch is smaller than your smallest fingernail, our review team concluded that it was not a reason to reject this otherwise superb book, but we would all be more comfortable with the addition of some permanent marker clothing.
