|Main Creator:||Laubier, Guillaume de, photographer.|
'The Most Beautiful Universities in the World' invites us to discover more than 30 hallowed halls of higher learning, moving from the University of Bologna--the Western world's first university, founded in 1088--to the Sorbonne in Paris, to Cambridge University in England, to Harvard University in the United States, while also featuring many other stunning and respected universities in between. After his acclaimed books that explored the world's most beautiful libraries and opera houses, photographer Guillaume de Laubier now turns his lens toward a new aspect of world heritage. Sumptuous photographs showcase amphitheaters, libraries, reception halls and hidden gardens, while the text describes the history of each campus, its architecture, research disciplines and reference collections.
