For lovers of architecture and art, it doesn’t get better than this: a year of the world’s tallest, most innovative, and most flat-out astonishing skyscrapers, adapted from Judith Dupre’s bestselling book with 475,000 copies in print. There’s Saudi Arabia’s Makkah Clock Royal Tower, topped by the largest clock in the world. London’s aptly named The Shard. On the cover, the twisting Absolute World Towers outside Toronto, nicknamed the “Marilyn Buildings” for their curves. And in New York City, One World Trade Center. Each building is beautifully photographed in full color, and images are accompanied by informative captions.
