Architect Yeang (b.1948) has challenged conventional engineering and economic premises in his alternative vision of the skyscraper; he sees skyscrapers as "cities in the sky" designed to be sensitive to ecological, environmental, and social considerations. In this abundantly illustrated volume his ideas and solutions for the skyscraper are discussed and illustrated in depth. Powell is an architect and urban planner who has lectured at universities in the US, Japan, Australia, and Europe. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
