Many of these structures are the tallest, longest, or largest of their kind, but sheer size alone does not make a building impressive: one finds aesthetic power combined with structural virtuosity in the small chapel at Ronchamp in France or the temple of Byodo-in near Kyoto, with its elegant wooden roof.
Neil Parkyn, an architect and city planner, is a prize-winning journalist and illustrator. He lives in England.
