Summary
Dan Cruickshank explores the theme of beauty in architecture in this program, from the beauty of nature's simplicity to that of extreme ornamentation. Dan goes to Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland, where he builds an igloo and learns about Inuit culture; Leshan, China, home of the ancient Giant Buddha, the largest of its kind; Russia's Catherine Palace, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture; the Sun Temple in Konarak, India, full of erotic statues that are still shocking today; and France's Albi Cathedral, built to suppress the local population but now an object of beauty
