With a new age of great architecture in full flight, the editors of TIME explore the most astonishing structures of the 21st century, the most influential buildings of the past and the master architects who have helped shape contemporary life. Here are visions of great beauty, from the Taj Mahal to the Sydney Opera House. Here are icons that resonate with history: the Pyramids at Giza, the Château de Versailles, Britain's Westminster Palace. Here are memorable homes, from Thomas Jefferson's stately Monticello to Frank Lloyd Wright's serene Fallingwater. Here are buildings touched by genius and sanctified by worship, marvels of engineering and lofty skyscrapers. Here are great eras of design, from the classical age to Art Nouveau to the International Style. Here are the most striking buildings of our time, from the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, to the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai, which thrusts more than a half-mile into the heavens and became the world's tallest building when it opened in 2010. And here are profiles and portfolios of five groundbreaking architects:20th century masters Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as contemporary visionaries Norman Foster, Frank Gehry and Santiago Calatrava. Completely updated from a popular 2004 TIME Books classic, the volume is lavishly illustrated with a host of spectacular photographs. In exploring civilization's most enduring creations, Great Buildings also offers an eye-opening encounter with the history, aesthetics and religions of the world's major cultures.

An anthology comprising twenty-nine essays, Eternal Stone: Great Buildings of India is a collection of meditative moments reflecting the architectýs private understanding of architecture. Having chosen a favourite building or monument, each architect narrates his or her individual experience of it, adding personal insights to illuminate design, historical facts and supplementing these with sketches, drawings and photographs. There are essays on public buildings, privates spaces of worship and of learning. The architects also dwell on aspects of the ancient and the modern, utilitarian architecture and buildings for the sake of beauty alone. While K.T. Ravindran examines the finer points of Rashtrapati Bhavan, self-confessed ýRoof Collectorý Laurie Baker takes us to the Padmabhapuram Palace, and Gautam Bhatia unravels the mystique of the shadows of the IIM, Ahmedabad. The reader travels across the country, gazing at domes and tombs in Bijapur and Agra and Gothic gargoyles at Victoria Terminus, encountering the geometric precision and magic of the Jantar Mantar, and absorbing the serenity of Hauz Khas. From palaces to temples, caves to churches, forts to stepwells, this is a journey where the architect is philosopher, guide and storyteller.
