About this title


This magnificently illustrated book documents a history of style in the photography of buildings and a history of the art and technology of photography itself.


"A volume whose photographs give aesthetic delight on almost every page and whose text is filled with information not readily available elsewhere, published in the large and sumptuous format it deserves."
Brendan Gill, New Yorker
"Both exquisite and incisive, tracing not only the development of photography itself but the subtle ways in which photography has shaped our culture's attitudes toward buildings. Architecture Transformed is the rare largeformat book: the elegance of its design is matched by the significance of its text."
Paul Goldberger, New York Times Book Review
"A large, gorgeous book, the kind to page through again and again."
Boston Globe
