Remarkable Buildings of the World is a beautifully presented, unique visual profile of the most iconic buildings in the world, spread through 25 of its most architecturally rich cities. Featuring the clean, monochrome illustrations of Studio Esinam, these unique artworks and the accompanying text will help you to learn the building's origins and understand what makes them so iconic. Inspired by the studio's 'Landmarks and Elevations' series of prints, the illustrations are distinctive and elegant, and the authors offer unique architectural insights. 'Whether the unique feeling of a city, the texture of a facade, or the balance of an interior space, our aim is to explore and communicate the deeper qualities of architecture by looking at it from new angles and presenting it in fresh and engaging ways', say Studio Esinam. Featured buildings include Tokyo's Bloomberg Pavilion, Berlin's partly destroyed Kaiser Wilhelm Gedachtniskirche, Paris's Notre Dame cathedral, Stockholm's Kaknastornet TV tower and New York's Empire State Building. Stripped of colour, and drawn in elegant black and white, Remarkable Buildings of the World will give you a much deeper understanding of buildings both new and familiar.
