They're things of beauty, symbols of their age and emblems of human endeavour. Sometimes, buildings are the reason we decide to go somewhere; think of an icon such as Bilbao's Guggenheim and Cambodia's Angkor Wat temple complex. Other times, buildings help make a visit more enriching and rewarding, like discovering the old district of Pelourinho in Salvador, Brazil and the majestic Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eu003cbu003eu003ciu003eAmazing Architecture: A Spotter's Guideu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003e is perfect for anyone interested in learning about many of the world's greatest architectural sites.
