Summary

This charmingly illustrated volume showcases iconic structures from the world’s most important and most architecturally interesting cities—sure to appeal to amateur enthusiasts, aspiring architects, and even professionals. This book presents unique visual profiles of the most iconic buildings in the world, from twenty-five of the most important and most visited cities. Featuring remarkably detailed line drawings elegantly rendered in black and white, these captivating artworks and the accompanying text help the reader learn each structure’s history and understand what makes them so visually and culturally iconic.
With the aim of exploring and communicating the deeper qualities of architecture by looking at it from new angles and presenting it in fresh and engaging ways, the illustrations are distinctive and elegant—inspired by Studio Esinam’s Landmarks and Elevations series of prints. Among the buildings included are such global icons as New York’s Chrysler Building, London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the Sydney Opera House, along with lesser-known yet equally outstanding structures like the Centre Pompidou in Paris or Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin.
