St. Peter’s Basilica, the Taj Mahal, the Topkapi Palace, the Sydney Opera House, the Hoover Dam―the world’s greatest structures capture the imagination, whether they are places of worship, palaces of pleasure, skyscrapers, bridges, dams, or colossal statues.

Many of these structures are the tallest, longest, or largest of their kind, but sheer size alone does not make a building impressive: one finds aesthetic power combined with structural virtuosity in the small chapel at Ronchamp in France or the temple of Byodo-in near Kyoto, with its elegant wooden roof. 352 illustrations, 267 in color

Review:

“Knowledgeably compiled and expertly edited by professional architect and experienced city planner Neil Parkyn, Wonders of World Architecture is more than just a beautifully illustrated global survey of architectural constructions, it is also an informed and informative text book that addresses a host of fascinating architecturally themed questions and issues...enthusiastically recommended.”
- Midwest Book Review
