- A fun and engaging introduction to the basic principles of engineering and architecture - Encourages environmental awareness - Aimed at the next generation of architects "An excellent resource for educating and inspiring young minds on the subjects of architecture, engineering, and the built environment" - Architect's Toy Box Aimed at young, enquiring minds, An Igloo on the Moon explores how and why we build. Beginning with the igloo, whose origins are lost in time, and culminating in the latest 3D-printing technology for lunar habitation, the book weaves together themes and ideas to create an unfolding visual story. Illustrated with a sequence of extraordinary collages, specially created by artist Adrian Buckley, the book ranges through history and across continents. Underlying the narrative is an awareness of environmental issues and the need to reconnect with sustainable patterns of building. It is a book to engage the next generation of architects - and their parents and teachers.

An Igloo on the Moon provides an informative and inviting overview of why and how human beings build... concise and insightful text with eye-grabbing collages... Consistently representing diverse cultures... Thought-provoking words and images work together to introduce the features of the spotlighted structures and to signify its geographical location, adaptations to the environment, cultural foundations, and place in history.--School Library Journal
