From the Pantheon in Rome to the Zollverein in Essen, Vital Architecture   describes buildings with a future value, buildings whose architecture determines and guarantees their lifespan. The book documents and interprets 20 vital buildings with plans, sections, and diagrams. It offers a spatial analysis of both instantly recognizable architectural icons and common, everyday existing buildings from the beginning of the Christian era to the present.
