LOST BUILDINGS Reviewed in Publishers Weekly
Publishers Weekly previews Lost Buildings: Demolished Destroyed Imagined Reborn, by Jonathan Glancey, coming in November: "Glancey invites readers to “dream about” buildings lost to antiquity, war, acts of God and modernization. Architecture and design editor at the Guardian, Glancey doesn’t dismiss everything new. What he bemoans is the loss of fine old buildings to generic, cheap new construction or even a parking lot, and overall he offers an entertaining if saddening survey of the long-lost and recently disappeared built landscape." Lost Buildings features more than 300 color and b&w illustrations.
