Architecture is an important yardstick of society's development and the buildings of a particular era, function and locale say much about the culture and aspirations of the people. Each of these handsomely illustrated books examines a different focus of architectural achievement, including historical inferences, functionality, and design. The spectacular photographs highlight an informative and comprehensive text.
