Item description for Rascacielos: Skyscrapers, Spanish-Language Edition (Spanish Edition) by Antonino Terranova...

Whether regarded as monstrosities or marvels of contemporary collective imagination, skyscrapers are a permanent feature of the urban landscape around the globe. Antonino Terranova, an architecture and urban development expert, traces the mythology and history of building structures from the Tower of Babel, the Colossus of Rhodes, and the Pharos of Alexandria to New York's Empire State Building, Riyadh's Al Faisaliah Center, Hong Kong's Bank of China, to Paris's Tour Montparnasse. 46 prominent skyscrapers are covered, 18 from all regions of the U.S. and the rest from cities in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia. This lavishly illustrated book, with color photos throughout, is ingeniously designed to resemble a tall building and covers skyscrapers from conception through construction.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rascacielos: Skyscrapers, Spanish-Language Edition (Spanish Edition)?

!Muy Bien!  Jul 20, 2005
I bought this book for my husband for Father's Day as he is fascinated with skyscrapers. However, he is from Mexico and although he speaks excellent English, he enjoys reading in his native Spanish. I have searched hi and lo for a book about skyscrapers in Spanish, to no avail, until now!

The pictures are fabulous and the information is great too.
