This fascinating book journeys through the history of many of the buildings that have shaped the world, ranging from Stonehenge and the Step Pyramid to the high rises that dominate the skylines today. Each page features one building and looks at its history, its architects, and the impact the style had on its contemporaries. A timeline flows along the bottom, showing which other buildings were being constructed at that time in other parts of the world and how they reflect the growth of the societies in which they were designed and built.
