***Buildings in Disguise
Architecture That Looks Like Animals, Food, and Other Things
by Joan Marie Arbogast
Reviewed April 22, 2005.
Boyds Mills Press, Honesdale Pennsylvania, 2004. 48 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (J 720 ARB).
Buildings in Disguise tells the story of mimetic architecture—architecture that mimics other objects. I was attracted to the book because of the picture on the front of Lucy the Elephant—a building my husband sent me a postcard from when we lived in New Jersey.
There’s an amazing variety of object- and animal-like buildings—teapots, shells, teepees, dogs, ducks and dinosaurs. This is an amusing and informative book.
