Renowned television historian Dan Cruickshank tells the history of architecture through the stories of 100  buildings.  Journeying through time and place, from the ancient Egyptian pyramids to the soaring skyscrapers of Manhattan, he explores the most impressive and characterful creations in world architecture, such as the Pantheon, Hagia Sophia, the Taj Mahal  and the Forbidden City  as well as less obvious and more surprising structures.   A History of Architecture in 100 Buildings is an eloquent and often moving testimony to the power of great architecture to shape, and be shaped by, world history, a story which Dan Cruickshank is perfectly qualified to bring to life.
