The buildings in the collection vary in style, age and grandeur, from the legendary Palace of Minos at Knossos, Crete, dating from about 1700 B.C. to 1400 B.C., to I. M. Pei's Pyramide du Louvre (1989). Distinctive but not well known buildings like the Gregory Farmhouse in Santa Cruz, Calif. an example of regional design, built by William Wurster in 1926 and 1927, are also included.
While the graphics are plentiful, the texts accompanying each entry are brief enough to keep architectural encyclopedias in print. "The emphasis is on the graphics," Mr. Matthews said. -- New York Times, February 3, 1994
