New York MinimalismBook - 2004
Minimalism in architecture has existed in New York for over fifty years.While other styles have come and gone, the simple, perfect expression of space and form that minimalism affords have perennially informed New York spaces -- residential, commercial, and public alike.Now that people's attention is again focused, not only on the New York skyline but also on the history and influence of Big Apple buildings, the time is right for this homage that presents twenty-two of the most representative minimalist projects in New York. Each featured project not only includes exquisite photography, but also brief reminiscences from each architect, reflecting on the spirit of the city as revealed in their works. A final discussion of New York's architectural icons rounds out the book.
New York Minimalism is a fascinating journey through recent history's most compelling examples of residential, commercial, and public architecture in New York, a celebration of architectural achievement in the city that never sleeps.
