The Seventy Architectural Wonders of the World


This is a listing of the world's seventy architectural wonders. According to some bloke who thinks he knows architecture so wrote a book on the subject. 

If the country has a link to it, it means I have visited it, so there will be a page that may even have some pictures of that wonder. Obviously if it is ticked, I have visited / seen it. 

So far 54 out of 70.
