New York (City Monographs)


An architectural monograph that celebrates one of the world's great cities and its landmarks illustrated with over fifty stunning photographs of the architectural gems of New York. An introductory essay puts the city into perspective, looking at its architectural evolution from earlier times to the present day. Thumbnails of the images can be found at the back along with short explanatory captions. Manhattan has probably the most recognizable skyline in the world, taking in the glorious art-deco chic of the Chrysler Building, the soaring pinnacle of the Empire State Building and the modernist curves of the Guggenheim Museum. In 2001 it was hit by a tragedy on a monumental scale, with the destruction of two of its most famous landmarks: the twin towers of the World Trade Center. But it is a city like no other: it has great spirit and verve and will survive. This book pays tribute to a remarkable and unforgettable modern metropolis.
