This year we published Suzette Field's A Curious Invitation: The Forty Greatest Parties in Literature. Parties are at the heart of literature, they're where the drama happens; this book is a compendium of who was there, what they wore, what was eaten and who said what to whom. In tribute to all the festivities in the book, we've asked our authors to tell us a little about their best parties, real and fictional.
We asked Rowan Moore to pick his top five architectural follies, and here they are - an eclectic mix from around the world and across the centuries.
What do you think is the world's biggest architectural folly? Tell us in the comments section below to be in with a chance of winning a signed first edition of Rowan Moore's brilliant new book Why We Build.
