In this book you will see some amazing "ancient and modern wonders." The types of architecture include castles, palaces, skyscrapers, bridges, buildings in the arts, towers, pyramids, tombs, places of worship, transportation hubs, bizarre buildings and future buildings. Among the many you will see in great detail include the Neuschwanstein, Diocletian's Palace, the Empire State Building, the Millau Viaduct, the Guggenheim Museum, Malaysia's Petronas Towers, the Terra-cotta Army, the Hagia Sophia, the Moscow Underground, Italy's Tower of Pisa and a Spaceport near Upham, New Mexico.
This book has some amazing photography and illustrations. It is surprisingly detailed and one could spend quite a bit of time on one of the more detailed pages. This is a wonderful book for those who have a fascination with buildings or simply anyone who enjoys a good book. When you open this book, you'll be just like a kid in a candy basket, unable to decide what to look at next. In the back of the book there is a detailed glossary and an index. Get ready for a lot of fun with this book . . . even the most reluctant reader won't be able to turn away from its pages!
