Schematics of the World's Greatest Structures

Great buildings are inspirational works of art, with the very best defining the city, or even the entire area, that they are found in.

This fantastic poster features 90 of the very best, from the Taj Mahal to the Gherkin (aka 30 St Mary Axe) presented in the stripped-back style of a blueprint schematic, with notations for location, height, year of construction and architectural mode and all of them drawn to scale.

You can preorder the poster at Pop Chart Lab for $23 (£14), with shipping beginning at the start of October. The Empire State Building was built at a rate of a floor a day, so if you get your skates on, you could try and bid for a late addition before they start sending them out.
