Available in Stock
Andrew Ballantyne's selection of around 150 structures is designed to emphasize the many different functions of architecture. After an initial selection of 'culture-defining monuments' that includes the Parthenon, Hagia Sophia and the Eiffel Tower, the buildings are arranged by role, from dwelling places to bridges, government offices to opera houses, each one illustrated in plan, section and elevation and photographically, along with a lucid explanation of its architectural significance. The book's drawings are also featured on a CD-Rom in EPS and DWG format.
