Le guide le plus complet sur l'architecture Nouillorcaise : plans, photos, actualité...

FEATURES OF THE FIFTH EDITION
:
• Entries cover more than 6,000 buildings, with thorough treatment of the outer boroughs
• The previous edition’s structures have been rephotographed and its commentary re-written
• 100 easy-to-use and satellite-enhanced maps show the footprint of each building
• World Trade Center area is addressed in depth
• Restored “necrology” section details lost New Yorklandmarks such as Pennsylvania Station

All entries in the Fifth Edition—from the historic to the new; the monumental to the subtle—benefit from short, spirited commentary that describe not only the place but its character in relation to other neighborhoods, to history and to the future. Thus, the guide addresses not just physical architecture but also issues of eminent domain, urban planning and gentrification.

 

Hailed as "extraordinarily learned" (New York Times), "blithe in spirit and unerring in vision," (New York Magazine), and the "definitive record of New York's architectural heritage" (Municipal Art Society), Norval White and Elliot Willensky's book is an essential reference for everyone with an interest in architecture and those who simply want to know more about New York City. First published in 1968, the AIA Guide to New York City has long been the definitive guide to the city's architecture. Moving through all five boroughs, neighborhood by neighborhood, it offers the most complete overview of New York's significant places, past and present. The Fifth Edition continues to include places of historical importance--including extensive coverage of the World Trade Center site--while also taking full account of the construction boom of the past 10 years, a boom that has given rise to an unprecedented number of new buildings by such architects as Frank Gehry, Norman Foster, and Renzo Piano. All of the buildings included in the Fourth Edition have been revisited and re-photographed and much of the commentary has been re-written, and coverage of the outer boroughs--particularly Brooklyn--has been expanded. Famed skyscrapers and historic landmarks are detailed, but so, too, are firehouses, parks, churches, parking garages, monuments, and bridges. Boasting more than 3000 new photographs, 100 enhanced maps, and thousands of short and spirited entries, the guide is arranged geographically by borough, with each borough divided into sectors and then into neighborhood. Extensive commentaries describe the character of the divisions. Knowledgeable, playful, and beautifully illustrated, here is the ultimate guided tour of New York's architectural treasures.

NEW YORK DELIRE - (KOOLHAAS REM)

Manhattan, entre le milieu du XIXe siècle et celui du XXe siècle, est le laboratoire d'une nouvelle culture, une île où se poursuit l'expérience collective d'un nouveau mode de vie métropolitain, une usine de l'artificiel où naturel et réel ont cessé d'exister. Avec des anecdotes, plans et citations d'époque.
