The breadth and diversity of America’s architectural milestones are vividly chronicled in this stunning volume by Robin Langley Sommer, richly illustrated with spectacular full-color photographs, panoramic and vertical fold-outs, architectural plans, period images and drawings. The forms and techniques of European colonists and Victorian-era Revival styles take their place here alongside remarkable feats of civil engineering, sleek skyscrapers and innovative masterpieces by Frank Lloyd Wright and I.M. Pei.
