Great Moments in Architecture

by Macaulay, David

Condition: Very Good


Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1978. Trade paperback. Unpaginated. Illustrated by the author. "Fanciful drawings of imaginary architectural achievements and moments in architectural history show the skewed plans for the Tower of Pisa, the future ruins of a MacDonald's stand, the Lesser Wall of China, and other noteworthy endeavors.". First Edition. Very Good.

A wonderous portfolio that has to be seen to be savored-or even believed for that matter. Here are the plans for the Tower of Pisa-on a skewed drafting table, the Eiffel Tower tipped over across from the Seine, the ruins of a McDonald's stand following some future Vesuvius, the disastrous meeting of the Great and Lesser Walls of China, and many other gems.
