This book gathers between two covers of disparate but remarkable buildings from across the centuries, many of them in exquisite full-page photographs. Will Pryce unveils a world of beauty and genius in this unparalleled, specially photographed survey of the world’s architectural masterpieces. More than 350 color photographs in this revised edition celebrate the finest buildings from over two thousand years of civilization: Hagia Sophia, the Gothic cathedrals of Europe, Islamic masterworks at Isfahan, the Taj Mahal, the Palace of Westminster, Gehry’s iconic Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and much more. There are some eighty buildings featured, more than forty of which receive in-depth attention in detailed photo essays. Pryce’s accompanying texts and commentaries provide an extra dimension of understanding for the contexts in which they were created, and of the evolution of architecture through history.
