Big city life unites the planet. Every habitable continent has metropolitan hot spots that are a hive of activity, a hub of culture – or, to countless millions, the place they call home.

Some thrive on a symphony of car horns while for others there’ s the rhythmic echo of trains or even ships. The air may hang heavy with spices or fragrant flowers, among buildings that are rarefied or regenerated. There’ s no universal formula that makes a city illustrious. But the spectacle of a horizon brimming with prominent buildings great and small evokes an anticipatory thrill about what lies at its core. And a skyline is that city’ s iconic signature writ large on a blank canvas, with no two appearing the same.

A skyline is a window-shoppers guide to what lays in store. It is a visual code that bridges the language gap and shows you at a glance what has made a city great.

From the dizzy heights of the Dubai horizon to the ancient silhouette of Rome,  Skylines  features fifty of the most iconic, vibrant and often magnificent places from across the globe. This is your key to exploring the world through the architectural triumphs that make our cities famous.

Beautiful and atmospheric illustrations sum up each cities’ spirit, history and location. Fast facts of each structure and building reveal threads that illuminate often well-trodden streets.  This compilation is defined by the one-of-a-kind places – including fortresses, palaces, sacred sites, monuments, skyscrapers and cultural hotspots – that makes each one unique.

See how well you really know these cities as they are depicted through the silhouettes of their most noteworthy buildings.
