The Illustrated Atlas of ArchitectureThe Illustrated Atlas of Architecture and Marvelous Monuments

By Alexandre Verhille, Sarah Tavernier

This unique architecture atlas shows the most remarkable buildings in
the world. Children and adults will marvel in amazement. Mali, in North
Africa, is home to the largest building made out of clay; the structure
only took one year to complete. For the construction of Neuschwanstein
Castle, 465 tons of marble were hefted to the Alps to the building site.
The Atomium in Brussels boasts the longest escalators in Europe. The
largest mosque in the world is as big as 56 football fields. The
Illustrated Atlas of Architecture and Marvelous Monuments presents a
world of breathtaking buildings and their incredible stories through
illustrated maps and engaging factsheets. Sarah Tavernier and Alexandre
Verhille have already deftly shown with Legendary Routes of the World
that they are experts in showcasing the biggest and the best. Now, for
The Illustrated Atlas of Architecture and Marvelous Monuments, they
researched the longest bridges, tallest towers, the most impressive
cultural sites, and plenty of curiosities. Exciting facts are woven
together with a myriad of architectural styles; the material feats are
skillfully and artfully placed upon bold maps, situating the
constructions within a geographic context. Publisher: Prestel
