Product description

"The Great Builders" surveys the careers of forty great architects whose engineering skills were crucial to their success. Sixteen nationalities and seven centuries of architectural innovation make for a survey of spectacular scope and depth. From churches and fortresses to bridges and high-tech skyscrapers, it includes masterpieces from all over the world and covers 700 years of architectural history. This book, in the same series as "The Great Naturalists" and "The Great Explorers", will appeal to anyone with an interest in architecture, buildings, engineering, urban planning or the history of the built environment.
