Overview

Updated and rephotographed edition of a massively successful book: the definitive reference to the city's contemporary architectural scene. Covering a diverse range of enormous- to diminutive-scale projects, this book is an urban study rather than just a building guide. The last ten years of post-urban architecture in New York have involved the infrastructure of the city. And with an energy found nowhere else, Manhattan is so vertically jam-packed that any single structure sends reverberations throughout its vicinity. So New York expands and contracts in large chunks, and this guide reveals pockets of change, gentrification and development: Bryant Park, Battery Park City, the future of 42nd Street and Times Square. All five boroughs and Roosevelt Island have been included. Complexes such as the Jacob Javits Convention Center by I.M. Pei are to be found side by side with Steven Holl's Storefront for Art and Architecture. Interiors as well as complete structures are covered. This book is probably the most comprehensive review available of recent architectural activity in New York. Written to appeal to both professionals and anyone interested in the built environment. 150 b/w photographs.
