Divided into six time-periods, each characterized by the tallest building of that era, the author examines the correlation between the structures and critical aspects of the period, such as materials, visionary architecture, commerce, style, and philosophy.
Utilizing original articles from ARCHITECTURAL RECORD as well as current thought, THE SKYSCRAPER reveals how these structures function as public cultural artifacts, how their designers conceived of the project, how they view them now, and other fascinating bits of history.
With vintage articles by Russell Sturgis, Lewis Mumford, Frank Lloyd Wright and others, 200 inspiring photographs (100 in full color), and outstanding contemporary coverage, here is a truly unique presentation of an important slice of modern society.
