Jonathan Glancey, formerly the Architecture and Design Editor at the Guardian, surveys buildings that have gone - whether by act of God, war or planning committee - and some that never were. Richly illustrated with photographs and reproductions, the book ranges from ancient structures 'lost in myth', such as the Tower of Babel and Darius's palace at Persepolis, to Norman Foster's Millennium Tower ('left on the drawing board'), and includes such famous lost buildings as Fonthill Abbey, Coventry Cathedral and the World Trade Center.
