Discover the most incredible man-made wonders, from Stonehenge to Burj Khalifa, with this unparalleled catalogue of the most amazing, famous, and intriguing buildings and monuments ever created by humans. Manmade Wonders of the World features a range of structures from buildings to monuments, statues, and bridges, including the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam.

It opens with a foreword by Dan Cruickshank and then takes the reader on a continent-by-continent journey, exploring and charting the innovations, ingenuity, and imagination employed by different cultures to create iconic buildings such as the Great Pyramid of Giza. This truly global approach reveals how humans tackled similar challenges, such as keeping the enemy out, in vastly different parts of the world, from the Great Wall of China to the defensive walls of Central American cities. Illustrations show floorplans and cutaway views, while explanations cover the history, architecture, and unique stories behind their construction.

Featuring breathtaking images, Manmade Wonders of the World is a complete celebration of the world humans have built over thousands of years.
