    [synopsis] => A nomad fashion's a home that's meant to be built and rebuilt. A family tears down an old house and erects a new one in its place. Even the Eiffel Tower wasn't meant to be anything more than temporary. As humans, we don't always build things to endure the test of time. Built to Last brings together the award-winning author and artist David Macaulay's creative, exacting thinking about buildings and designs that were crafted with a strength of structure and purpose that defy the everyday: Castle, Cathedral, and Mosque. This gorgeous volume includes newly researched information about each building and how it was built. And, for the first time ever, the Caldecott Honor—winning Castle and Cathedral appear in full color-with stunning new drawings that enrich the reader's understanding of these structures, and capture intriguing new perspectives and details. Just as the buildings themselves were created to last, our interest in the structures themselves, the people who created them, and the purposes for which they were made endures as well. This impeccably researched volume-a necessary addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in architecture-celebrates this spirit of endurance and serves as a reminder that building well and leaving something of consequence behind, whether a building, a design, or an idea, is still of the utmost importance.
