Lost Buildings: Demolished, Destroyed, Imagined, Reborn

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Glancey invites readers to “dream about” buildings lost to antiquity, war, acts of God and modernization. Architecture and design editor at the Guardian, Glancey doesn't dismiss everything new. What he bemoans is the loss of fine old buildings to generic, cheap new construction or even a parking lot, but in waxing poetic about buildings only imagined in literature, he gets off the point. But overall he offers an entertaining if saddening survey of the long-lost and recently disappeared built landscape. 300 color and b&w illus. (Oct.)
