Sigue una mezquita en Tumbuctú, el Palazzo Rucellai de Florencia, el teatro de Bayreuth, los angeles obra de Le Corbusier, o una fábrica de coches en Chicago. Edificios a partir de los cuales el autor traza una historia del mundo y del desarrollo de las condiciones de vida, de trabajo e incluso de nuestras prioridades en el orden ethical y estético.
