If they build it

Intricate, that's the best word to describe The Architecture Pop-Up Book with paper engineering by Anton Radevsky (The Pop-Up Book of Spacecraft) and text by the aptly named Pavel Popov. Ancient and Old World gems such as the Pyramids, the Roman Coliseum and Notre Dame are included, as are New World icons like the Chrysler Building—don't be dismayed by its initial stunted appearance, just follow the directions. Two Guggenheims, Frank Lloyd Wright's and Frank Gehry's, and a Salvatore Calatrava (designer of Athens' new Olympic stadium and the Ground Zero transit station) bridge round out these magnificent three-dimensional representations.
