Atlas of Amazing Architecture

This atlas of architectural wonders eschews the like of the Pyramids and the Taj Mahal and takes a broader view of what constitutes amazing architecture. Buildings include Native American plank houses in New Mexico, Stave Churches in Norway, the Djinguereber mosque in Mali, and extraordinary 18th century wooden churches on Kizhi Island, Russia. Each of these buildings is visually striking and architecturally noteworthy - they introduced new engineering technologies, helped define a movement, or capture the essence of a moment in human history.
