Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the 216-page hardcover book celebrates the architecture, interiors and legacy of one of Gwathmey Siegel’s last masterpieces and Milan-based Bizzi & Partners first New York City development. 400 Fifth Avenue permanently changed the New York City skyline when it was completed in 2010, joining the ranks of the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building with its stunning limestone façade, textured stainless-steel panels, and sculpted floor-to ceiling windows soaring 60 stories above Midtown. 400 Fifth Avenue shares the comprehensive plans for the property and explores every detail from the distinctive façade to the interiors expertly appointed by DAS Concepts. The book features an introduction by esteemed architecture critic Paul Goldberger, foreword by Robert Siegel of the award-winning Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects and vivid photography by architectural and interiors photographer Evan Joseph." ~UniqueHomes.com

“Gwathmey Siegel’s buildings represent the pinnacle of late-twentieth and early-twenty-first-century modernist design and the new book focuses on just that.” ~Editor at Large
