Reviews - What do customers think about Buildings That Changed The World?

A worthwhile buy  Apr 30, 2003
The first time I saw this publication was on a book fair in São Paulo and I found it amazing from the very first moment. I bought it from this site some weeks later and it really paid its value.

It covers the story behind each building that have become world famous landmarks.

You can go directly to a specific building you're interested in or read it throughly from beginning to end. Both ways you'll be pleased and surprised with the information provided.

The only thing that disappointed me was the very little coverage on South American landcaspes such as Machu Pich ruins Oscar Nyemeyer's Brasília

However, it's an excelente book anyway. If you do appreciate good architecture, you won't regret buying it.

Needs a Second Edition  Apr 1, 2000
I was enthralled in the book. Buildings that Changed the World is a spectacular photographic adventure. For anyone that loves history and architecture it is a fantastic book to look at. Reading, however, is different. The author, understandably, has little room to explore the different intrigues of every building. There are fantastic stories to some of these buildings that are not mentioned. Again, I do understand the limited space but I would love to see a second edition to this book that goes into the buildings more in depth. The author uses the Kremlin as a whole but, I believe that the buildings individually should have been addressed. Specifically, St. Basil's Cathedral which has a fantastic history of construction under Ivan the Terrible.
