The renowned television historian journeys through time and place, from the ancient Egyptian pyramids to the soaring skyscrapers of Manhattan, as he explores the most impressive and characterful creations in world architecture. His selection includes many of the world’s best-known buildings that represent key or pioneering moments in architectural history, but also covers less obvious and more surprising structures, the generally unsung heroes of an endlessly fascinating story and the power of great architecture to shape, and be shaped by, world history. Dan Cruickshank has made numerous history and culture programmes for the BBC including Britain’s Best Buildings, Around the World in Eighty Treasures; Adventures in Architecture and Under Fire: Culture and Conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq. He is a prolific author, an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and has served on the Architecture Panel of the National Trust.
