Bridges define places. Imagine San Francisco without the Golden Gate Bridge, Manhattan without the Brooklyn Bridge, or Sydney without Sydney Harbour Bridge. Dan Cruickshank looks at what bridges mean to us, and draws on some of his personal favourites to tell the story of their architectural and cultural influence.

A hundred brief (equivalent to about two pages of a trade paperback) essays about buildings, or groups of buildings: their history, materials, building, some aesthetic theory, and in some cases, their destruction. There is a bias towards modernism, and also towards Britain, America, and Europe, to the detriment of other peoples' architectural accomplishments.
