In this book architectural masterpieces from various eras are put side by side. Fifty visual analogies between old and new(er) buildings reveal that much remains the same through time. Architecture reflects human behavior, which turns out to be surprisingly constant. Therefore, architects are always concerned with comfort, place making, storytelling, beauty and the 'higher'. From Borromini to Le Corbusier and from Balthasar Neumann to Zumthor.
