APOLOGY, please note:

This blog is still under construction. We do not wish to publish it to search engines yet until we post a significant amount of information. Those who have just visited this blog by clicking links from other "architectural series" blogs or just surfed from Blogger itself, we apologize greatly and request for patience. We hope in due time all the blogs of architectural series will be helpful to all, especially for the architects.

Until then, please visit "architectural monographs" and "film and architecture" a subsection of "Architectural videos" which are relatively rich in content.

description: (click read more)

In typical DK visual-oriented style, this book presents many different types of man-made structures, beginning with wonders of the ancient world, and ranging all the way forward to Spaceport America, a commercial space-travel facility that is still in its planning and construction phases, with stops at castles, skyscrapers, bridges, towers, and more along the way. Each type of structure is given a general overview before focusing in on inviting spreads of specific examples, such as Neuschwanstein Castle and Hagia Sophia, former place of worship, now a museum. Each spread has a detailed, two-page illustration of the structure with multiple cutaways (a few are foldouts) and fact-bits peppered across the pages. This is followed by a “Building Blocks” section, which provides more photographs, design illustrations, light blueprints, and interesting trivia related to the highlighted structure. The scattershot design makes it all but impossible to read straight through, but readers with a developing interest in architecture or engineering or simply an appreciation for mankind’s most awesome constructions will find much to pore over here.
