Adventures in Architecture : Architecture is an art, a science, and a craft. But buildings also have to fulfill a function, cater to human use, withstand the forces of nature, and be built to a budget. Following his popular Around the World in 80 Treasures, Dan Cruickshank presents a compelling, maverick history of architecture. This handsomely photographed guide navigates eager readers on a tour of the buildings Dan believes have changed the world, such as the Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg and the Hanging Temple in Shanxi, China.
