Lost Buildings: Demolished, Destroyed, Imagined, Reborn
From the Colossus of Rhodes to Old London Bridge, Lost Buildings is an invitation to visit buildings long vanished or those demolished within living history.In addition to constructions lost over time, acclaimed architecture writer Jonathan Glancey examines imaginary buildings from literature and myth as well as fantastic designs that were never built. Lost Buildings even includes a number of once-lost structures that are now being reconstructed. From the ziggurat at Uruk to the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, from the film sets of Blade Runner to Frank Lloyd Wright's designs for a mile-high tower, Glancey offers the reader tantalizing glimpses of what was, or what might have been.Lavishly illustrated with over 300 color and black-and- white photographs, Lost Buildings is a feast for the eyes that no one interested in architecture or design should be without.
