With poetic language and detailed photographs, Round Buildings, Square Buildings & Buildings that Wiggle Like a Fish (1988) by Philip M. Isaacson makes the human-made seem positively organic. He describes the Taj Mahal as ""made of marble the color of cream,"" a stone church ""like an old monk gathered up in his robes"" and windows as ""pathways to the spirit of a building.""
