A Historical SurveyBook - 1989
For five millennia the tower building has been a symbol of human aspirations, status & power. This book surveys the many structural roles of the tower: as viewing platform, as wind tower & in more conventional expressions as residential or officebuilding, structures both monumental & functional. The book is profusely illustrated in colour & provides a wealth of statistical data. It will be a useful work of reference & inspiration to practising architects & all those involved in the construction of tower buildings.
