“One of the many appealing aspects of World Architecture is its gathering between two covers of disparate but remarkable buildings from across the centuries, many of them in exquisite full-page photographs.”―Wall Street Journal

Will Pryce unveils a world of beauty and genius in this unparalleled, specially photographed survey of the world’s architectural master- pieces. More than 350 color photographs 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. 350 color photographs

About the Author:

Will Pryce is an award-winning photographer who originally trained as an architect at Cambridge University and the Royal College of Art, and photojournalism at the London College of Printing.

Review:

“The sheer brilliance and detail of the photographs cause us to see with fresh eyes what may be over-familiar... or easily overlooked.”
- The Wall Street Journal
