How the world's great artists envisioned the future
A panoramic exploration of works of the creative imagination throughout history, Visionary Architecture: Unbuilt Works of the Imagination, by Ernest Burden, introduces you to a wide range of far-reaching, original designs that, unbuilt, survived purely as artistic vision.

The significant international content, from Prehistory through Medieval, Renaissance,and Modern periods: includes full-page illustrations of baroque stage sets, designs for the film Metropolis and urban cityscapes by M.C.Escher, Frank Lloyd Wright, Hugh Ferriss, and much more. A timeline integrates architectural events alongside their historical and cultural counterparts. The architectural imagery is represented by several media and stylistic techniques; sketches, drawings, paintings, models, andcomputer-generated images.
