World's Biggest Buildingsby Maria Costantino, Maria Constantino
The World's Biggest Buildings takes us on a global tour of fifty of the most impressive engineering and architectural undertakings that humanity has yet achieved. This full color account features superb full-page photographs of each building and is illustrated with comprehensive location maps. It takes us on an historic journey from the ancient pyramids of Mexico and Egypt, to the Roman Coliseum in Italy and the only man-made construction that can be seen from outer space--the Great Wall of China. Buildings from the modern era include the record-breaking Petronas Towers in Malaysia as well as the beautiful art deco architecture of Manhattan's Empire State Building and the stunning, neon dream of the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Others from around the world include cathedrals, castles, libraries, museums, and stadiums.
Even the size of the book reflects the content with its substantial 11 3/4" by 15 1/4" format.
