Lists are fun. In 100 Years, 100 Buildings, John Hill, founder/editor-in-chief of the blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, casts his critical eye back into a century of great architecture. He sifts a superb international collection of the best existing structures, one for each year from 1916 to the present. Starting with H. P. Berlage’s Holland House in London and closing with Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s Broad Museum in Los Angeles, Hill combs the globe for iconic buildings which are able to be seen and explored by the average enthusiast. Featuring large color photographs and short text for each building, as well as an introductory essay and timeline of important architectural events, 100 Years, 100 Buildings surveys the underlying themes and developments in the world of architecture.

John Hill is an architect, editor-in-chief of the Daily News section of World-Architects.com, and founder/editor-in-chief of the blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, where he publishes daily articles about architecture news and book reviews. He is the author of Guide to Contemporary New York City Architecture.
