Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The production quality is high: for each building, five pages of excellent color photographs are mixed together with succinct text devoted to each building."  —Library Journal

Library Journal

This book, the second in an ongoing series concentrating on the architectural production of individual U.S. cities, highlights the last 25 years of architectural design in Atlanta. The production quality is high: for each building, five pages of excellent color photographs are mixed together with succinct text devoted to each building. The architects are almost all Atlanta firms, and they have followed in the footsteps of their more illustrious leaders, illustrating all of the major styles of the past quarter century, from cubism to postmodern revivalism. The former style is sampled in the New World of Coca Cola Museum, and the latter is evident in renovations of older, historic buildings in which the quality and character of earlier construction shines forth. Recommended for architecture school libraries and libraries in the Southeast region.
—Peter S. Kaufman
