Pevsner’s architectural vocabulary has been parodied in the New Statesman and appeared in verse in the Guardian. Now, based on the successful 2010 publication in hardback of Pevsner's Architectural Glossary, this stunning app offers users a dynamic and innovative way to engage with architecture and the Pevsner lexicon. It will serve as a handy reference app that will enliven any architectural exploration.

The app, for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch contains new features including expanded text, numerous additional colour images and relevant building descriptions to support the definitions, clear line drawings and an audio pronunciation guide to the terms. It’s the perfect way to check architectural terms when you are out and about, exploring buildings.
