Tall Buildings of Europe, Middle East & Africa
Images Publishing, 2006 - Architecture - 240 pages
'Tall Buildings of Europe, Middle East and Africa' will focus on buildings completed in the nineties and the early years of the new millennium. It will also feature most of the 'yet-to-be-completed' major projects and a selection of buildings completed during the different decades of the 20th century. The 1990s saw the re-emergence of major tall buildings in Europe, mainly in the Netherlands, UK and Germany. 'Tall buildings of Europe' will visit all parts of Europe including Paris and Warsaw, as well as looking at Moscow and Istanbul. In recent years the Middle East has emerged as a centre for new tall buildings, with the construction of several very tall buildings in Dubai and Riyadh; commercial and residential projects in Tel Aviv; and tall buildings planned for Cairo. This fine publication features stunning visuals that capture the might and power of these extraordinary constructions.
