Overview

The AIA New Jersey Guidebook reveals the state’s rich architectural legacy and the eclectic mix of periods and styles that make it unique. Only in New Jersey can you find the cradle of America's industrial revolution, stately Victorian inns, and distinctive “Doo Wop style” motels.

Selected by a distinguished group of local architects, the 150 structures depicted in the AIA New Jersey Guidebook include both justly renowned buildings and hidden architectural gems. The book’s authors—expert architects and building historians—give equal attention to the works of such modern masters as Louis Kahn and Frank Lloyd Wright and to the ballparks and diners that give the Garden State its local flavor. Stunning color photographs capture the beauty of New Jersey’s architectural heritage. Thorough descriptions of each building explain its historical significance and architectural features in clear, direct language.

Compact and organized by region, the AIA New Jersey Guidebook is a wonderful traveling companion for road trips across the state or sightseeing day trips. Start your tour of the Garden State today!

Editorial Reviews

Period Homes

"While New Jersey is not generally well knowns for its built environment, the state is home to a number of architectural icons. To commemorate the American Institute of Architects' 150th anniversary, as well as to celebrate these impressive structures, the New Jersey chapter honors the milestone with a new book featuring 150 of the best examples of architecture in the state. The authors' extensive backgrounds in New Jersey architecture and preservation allow their prose to be descriptive, precise, and eloquent. The book is an ideal desk reference for all of the state's architectural hotspots."
