Praise

“In this anthology, John Hill presents a century of buildings. Adhering to a single yearly entry starting in 1916, Hill is able to intersperse big names with lesser-known players and abstain from focusing on architecture’s most iconic and thus frequently referenced periods. While he admits the range betrays his own Western perspective, the unique format draws out lessons in style, shifting priorities, and the ways in which global events are reflected in man-made places.”

Metropolis magazine
“By cutting himself free of the artificial constraint of highlighting the 20th century alone, architect John Hill brings his survey of remarkable buildings up to the present…Hill’s approach forces a greater diversity than you’ll find in most guides to architecture’s greatest hits… It might even inspire building-gawkers to book a trip or two.”

-The Tangential
“Architecture expert John Hill’s comprehensive new book 100 Years 100 Buildings highlights an important structure from each of the past hundred years. . . . High-profile highlights from around the globe include Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye (1931), Frank Lloyd Wright’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1959), and Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House (1973), while lesser-known works are sprinkled throughout.”

Architectural Digest
“Hill combed the world seeking out its iconic buildings. The result is a book that’s a finely designed compendium – where he presents his personal selection of the most significant building from 1916 to 2015. And it’s not just about residences – there are churches, office buildings and museums too. Hill required that it be a building that’s still standing, and one that anyone could go and see in person . . . It’s a journey worth taking – in person or in print.”
