Overview

Imagine the tour of your life—a grand tour of the world’s most fabulous buildings. Imagine the thrill of seeing for the first time the great architectural wonders you’ve only ever heard about: the astonishing Canadian National Tower, the world’s tallest freestanding structure on land; the incredible engineering genius of the Hoover Dam and Panama Canal; the complex geometry of the Sydney Opera House, designed to look like a regal ship in full sail. Imagine the pleasures of revisiting the remarkable buildings and monuments for which you have a special fondness, buildings as familiar as old friends— the Houses of Parliament in London, the Empire State Building in New York, the Eiffel Tower in Paris—and seeing each of them with renewed enthusiasm, in a fresh light. Imagine no more. Turn the pages of this exciting, inspiring, book and you’ll be there!
