Architectural Guide to New York CityArchitectural Guide to New York City

This architectural guide brings together 100 of the most original
structures built in New York City since 1999. Vladimir Belogolovsky
pairs them with such nicknames as Guillotine, Peacock, Shark's Fin,
Turtle Shell, and Woodpecker. The New York-based author's selection
covers buildings realized by the world's most renowned architects in a
period when their creations were celebrated as art, and personal styles
were encouraged by the media, critics, and clients. The featured time
span begins with the rise of the starchitect in the late 1990s, and ends
in the present day. But the mission of the book is not only to
document; it is also to celebrate New York's transformative energy. Many
of the buildings were designed either by foreign architects or those
who settled in the city and now call it home. Through witty, incisive
commentary, catchy nick­names, and quotes from the author's interviews
with the architects, this singular guide allows readers to see many of
New York's contemporary icons in a new way.
