A meaty and tantalizing guide for travellers and a distilled survey for architecture students. Entries are arranged chronologically by date of completion and are cross-referenced by architect and location. Each building is illustrated with a photo or drawing, and the text tells about its construction and enduring influences. Visiting information is included. -- Book News, Inc., 1 November 1993
