About

Why do we still find a multi-coloured Parthenon so unsettling today? Why was the Eiffel Tower such a target for hatred when it was first built? Is the Sagrada Familia a work of genius or kitsch? Why has Le Corbusier, one of the greatest of all architects, been treated as a villain? Jonathan Glancey examines the critical legacy of both well known and either forgotten or underappreciated highpoints in the history of world architecture. Take a fresh look at the reputations of the masterpieces and great architects in history.
