Sky High: Vertical Architecture
Chris Abel (au); Norman Foster (fr)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Skyscrapers arouse more controversy than any other building form. And they are suddenly getting much bigger & more numerous; nowhere more so than in Asia Pacific. Yet this race for the clouds obscures the more profound changes taking place in the design & construction of tall buildings. This book traces the evolution of vertical architecture around the world. Surveys early iconic skyscrapers in America, the changing skylines of the Pacific Rim & the most recent energy-efficient towers in Europe, examining how attitudes towards tall buildings are changing. Investigates the vital role of tall buildings in housing the fast-expanding populations of the mega-cities of today & tomorrow. Over 100 color & black & white illustrations.
