1001 Buildings You Must See Before You Die is a visual testament to the beauty, grace, and fortitude of the world's greatest architectural achievements. Beginning in the ancient and Near East, the book explores buildings from the Byzantine and Gothic architecture of the Middle Ages through to splendid contemporary innovations. The book is not only concerned with size - it also includes some of the world's most remarkable domestic buildings, such as the Mongolian yurt and houses of the American pioneers, as well as railway buildings, chapels, casinos, concert halls, gentlemen's clubs, and museums, cherished often for the way they represent and capture a particular moment in history. Comprehensive and concise entries contain essential information on what is special about the buildings, their structural processes, and the social, political and geographical considerations of the architects who designed them. An aspiring visual testimony to the extraordinary creative capabilities of the architects, engineers, and builders, this book also contains information on the tools and methods they used. 1001 Buildings You Must See Before You Die is the complete companion to the outstanding architecture of the world.
