Book Description Literary Licensing, LLC, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A welcome republication of a scarce title from America s greatest architectural draftsman. First published in 1953 and long out of print, the sixty bold drawings and informed text trace Ferriss s personal odyssey through the modern architecture of America from 1929 to 1953. Dams, bridge anchorages, grain elevators, skyscraper projects, and viaducts are delineated in Ferriss s rich and somewhat brooding chiaroscuro style, while he surprises us with illustrations of such landmarks as the Johnson Wax building, Taliesin West, Lever House, and the then-unbuilt United Nations Headquarters.
