Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York architecture has captured the world's imagination for years, and this book offers compelling evidence that the last ten years are no exception. The city draws more tourists than ever and looks the best it's looked in years. In over 350 pages and close to 400 photographs, this new volume will include the top fifty buildings and interiors from the last decade, among them projects by a Who's Who of famous architects: Rem Koolhaas, Gwathmey Siegel, Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, and Philippe Starck. There are no books available that document the same time period with this breadth and depth.

Featured projects: Rem Koolhaas's Prada Store, James Polshek's new Planetarium at the Smithsonian Institute's Museum of Natural History, the 42nd Street Redevelopment project with skyscrapers by Arquitectonica and KPF, Philippe Starck's Hudson and Paramount hotels, Renzo Piano's New York Times headquarters project, and Diller and Scofidio's winning scheme for Eyebeam, in addition to smaller cutting edge projects by ShoP, Architecture Research Office, and LOTEK
