Full Description

New York City is a metropolis in a constant state of metamorphosis. Amidst continuous construction, the redevelopment of the existing cityscape plays a fundamental role in the evolution of the Big Apple as a place to live, work, and visit. This pocket guide to highlights of modern and contemporary architecture features 85 famous skyscrapers, cutting-edge projects with abandoned infrastructure, post-industrial buildings, and inventive low-cost housing models. Each building is accompanied by text describing its history, use, materials, and architectural profile, in addition to directions, and public accessibility.
