Explore the iconic buildings of the world, the history of homes and public buildings, and meet some of the architects who created them

Want to know more about the buildings around you? Can’t tell a Doric from a Corinthian column? Interested in how the Egyptians built the pyramids, and how on earth a dome stays up? Packed with absorbing facts and quirky illustrations, this book tells you everything you need to know about architecture around the world, from the simple dwellings created by the earliest humans to today’s most innovative buildings, via forbidding medieval strongholds, great 18th-Centruy palaces, and the classic Art Deco skyscrapers of New York. Learn about the great architectural movements and the personalities that created them, and explore the most iconic buildings in the world, from the Parthenon in Greece to the (current) world’s tallest skyscraper, the Khalifa Tower in Dubai. This book is a perfect introduction to what’s cool about the fascinating world of architecture.
