9783937718217: New York Architecture & Design (Architecture & Design Book)

The Big Apple, cosmopolitan city par excellence, capital of the world; these are some of the adjectives that have defined New York over the course of history, although words are never quite enough to describe this fascinating and vibrating city. Its strategic geographical position, its historical record as the primary doorway open to the New World, its rapid economic growth and its role as meeting point and gathering place for the cultures of the world make it a city that never stops re-inventing itself. New York's recent architecture illustrates this dynamic character. What several decades was possibly perceived as an obsessive appeal for skyscrapers and the creation of a singular skyline has now given way to a body of architecture the exhibits articulate forms, incorporates advanced construction systems, explores new materials and above all, seeks a continuous interaction with the city's inhabitants. The current book proposes a tour of the most recent corporate buildings, commercial spaces, museums, hotels, restaurants, bars and public spaces within the edition, a complete and thorough study of the most recently constructed works and future projects of a city that continues to stand as reference point for the contemporary architecture stage.

Bei Mehrfachbestellung werden die Versandkosten anteilig erstattet. - Big Apple - Haupstadt der Welt - das sind einige der Bezeichnungen, mit denen man New York im Laufe seiner Geschichte zu definieren suchte. Jedoch kann man diese faszinierende und vibrierende Stadt nur schlecht mit Worten beschreiben. Da die Stadt eine sehr günstige, geographische Lage einnimmt und das Haupteingangstor zum neuen Kontinent war, ihre Wirtschaft mit Schwindel erregender Geschwindigkeit wächst und sie Treffpunkt für die Kulturen der Welt ist, definiert sie sich auch fortwährend selbst neu. Die neueste Architektur New Yorks ist ein Beweis für diese Dynamik. (.) Auf den folgenden Seiten möchten wir Ihnen die neuesten Firmengebäude und Einkaufszentren, Museen, Hotels, Restaurants, Kneipen, Cafés und öffentliche Einrichtungen der Stadt vorstellen. (.) Diese Zusammenstellung der neuesten Bauten und künftigen Projekte der Stadt beweist, dass New York auch weiterhin ausschlaggebend für das Panorama der zeitgenössischen Architektur ist. (.) (aus der Einführung) 240 pp. Deutsch, Englisch, Französisch, Italienisch, Spanisch. Bookseller Inventory # INF1000048485
