History of architecture

As already mentioned on my homepage, one of my favorite themes has always been the history of architecture. Since I've had enough time recently to get back to focus on my job and my love for architectural history, I started making videos and to upload them to YouTube. Here you always will find a current selection of them. Picture credits and a compilation of all my videos on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/OttLanzarote

All videos with English subtitles!
