Synopsis:
Architectural historian Dan Cruickshank follows a global treasure trail of buildings that have impressed, astonished and delighted us and have changed our perception of the world. On a voyage of discovery, he travels around the globe exploring examples of architecture ranging from the Catherine Palace in St Petersburg; the Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan; the Hanging Temple in China's Shanxi Provence; the Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria; and even an igloo, man's earliest exercise in creating shelter, in Greenland.
In each programme, structures from all over the world are dramatically juxtaposed, exposing unexpected connections and demonstrating how architecture, in truly great buildings, can reveal our aspirations, ingenuity and beliefs.
