Summary
"This accessible reference is ideal for anyone interested in great spaces and spectacular buildings and for anyone keen to know more about architecture. Each of the architectural works in this book features clever overlays with die-cut windows that allow the reader to identify and focus on specific design elements. Each window includes a thoughtful caption explaining the significance of the highlighted area: building materials, historical context, and insights into the planning and architectural influences. Including works ranging from the Hagia Sofia and Angkor Wat to St. Peter's Basilica and the Palace of Versailles, and from the Eiffel Tower and Fallingwater to the Millau Viaduct, the book is organized chronologically and presents buildings from all genres, covering more than two millennia of architectural history. In addition to the clever die-cut captions, each building is featured in an essay filled with essential information on the construction, as well as the social, political, cultural, and geographical considerations of the architect. Stunning photographs allow the reader to appreciate the technical feats and aesthetic brilliance of both the buildings and architects past and present."--Book jacket
