Doors are prominent and essential elements of all buildings. They pave the way into and out of a building. Thus, doors are simultaneously an article of daily use and an explicit statement of the homeowner. They can serve as an invitation just as well as a barrier. Due to the variety of potential uses and statements the door is an integral, yet very intricate architectural component.

Through the eye of excellent photographers with exceptional attention to detail, this volume attempts to capture the magnificent diversity of doors from all architectural epochs and styles found in Europe’s greatest cities. It documents the entire scope of entrance design from ancient to brand new, from frugal to pompously ornate, from functional to playful.

The volume is part of a series, which is focused not on prominent buildings at large but on ingenious and extraordinary details.
