A world of beauty and genius is unveiled in over 350 photographs which take you on an epic journey celebrating the finest examples of architecture from over 2,000 years of civilization.

Deftly splitting the history of architecture into two parts at AD1500, World Architecture: The Masterworks contains over 80 buildings, over 40 of which are featured in detailed photo essays. The book includes both the acknowledged stars – the Pantheon; Hagia Sophia; the great cathedrals of Europe; Islamic masterpieces at Isfahan and Samarkand; the Sydney Opera House – and the unfamiliar – the Hindu temple of Prambanan in Java; the Pilgrimage church of Sainte-Foy at Conques, France; and Santa Maria della Consolazione at Todi, Italy, among others.

World Architecture: The Masterworks is the perfect volume for anyone with even a passing interest in architecture and its crowning achievements.
