    Great for use at school with students!

    Great book for use at school for kids to explore or use to look for geometric figures and then estimate volume, area, etc. Absolutely beautiful pictures from all over the world.

    Wow! Great Book

    The Year in Architecture was given to me as a Christmas gift and what a gift it was! This is a great visual reference to some of the world's more stunning and important structures. The photography is outstanding and the quality of presentation is excellent. I have it sitting in my office and everyone comes by to check the architectural image of the day. However, that said, the book makes a terrible calendar as it is too large and unwielding to maintain as an appointment book. Plus,the numerical days of the month are not shown relative to the days of the week. For instance, the third of any month is shown as the third, not as Friday the third. Therefore, I would caution anyone giving this book as an appointment book, but as a coffee table book, as a gift or something to add to one's permanent library, it is excellent. The buildings selected as the subject matter for the photos are diverse, interesting and presented well. I have had more comments and people interested in looking at this book than any other book that has adorned my coffee table in my office. I would highly recommend this book as a gift or to anyone looking to add a conversation piece to their room or office.

    A beautiful book for the coffee table

    This book depicts many styles of architecture from throughout the world. I like the fact that they are close-up views of the details of the buildings, not just the standard postcard views. There is a very good variety of styles throughout the ages. A persona wants to continue through all 365 pages once the first page is turned.
