Summary

Travelling the world with an architect's eye Architect Harry Seidlerspent more than 50 years traveling the globe, extensively photographing the peak achievements in architecture from 3000 B.C. to the present day. Thanks to sound advice given to him early on by his photographer brother Marcell ("Only use Leica cameras and Kodachrome film, which is archival"), Seidler's hobby quickly developed into a passion and, finally, an impressive archive of world architecture. Including, of course, many of the world's most famous architectural structures, Seidler's photographs illustrate the history and stylecountry by countryof architecture in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Americas. Divided into chapters by country, each with a brief introduction outlining its architectural history, The Grand Touroffers armchair travelers, students, architecture buffs, and historians the opportunity to browse the buildings of the world through one man's photographsthe fruits of a passionate, half-century endeavor.
