Inhaltsangabe: Matteo Pericoli trained as an architect in Milan and then came to work in New York in 1995. His arrival preceded by just a few days the arrival of the biggest snowstorm of the decade, and the sense of the city in its wake?especially its silence?remained in his mind. He experienced similar feeling taking photographs of Riverside Drive from the Circle Line ferry, and decided to transpose them into a line drawing. It was then that he felt compelled to photograph the whole of New York?s shoreline profile?from Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and New Jersey (which he reached by motorcycle) ? and make two continuous and continuously enchanting pen-and-ink drawing of Manhattan?s skyline.
Manhattan Unfurled is published in an elegant slipcase, and the drawings fold out, accordion-style, with the West on one side and the East on the other. An introduction by distinguished New Yorker architecture critic Paul Goldberger, who first wrote bout Matteo?s project in The New Yorker?s ?Talk of the Town,? will accompany the drawing in a separate pamphlet. This book is both a wonderful New York City memento, perfect for gift giving, and an entirely unique work of art.
Rezension: In Manhattan Unfurled, architect Matteo Pericoli turns his affection for the city into two continuous and continuously enchanting pen-and-ink drawings of the skyline. This unusual book comes in a linen slipcase and opens accordion-fashion into a 22-foot-long panorama, the east on one side, west on the other. As critic Paul Goldberger writes in the accompanying booklet, "Pericoli has given us the Manhattan skyline in all its awesome chaos, but he has rendered it readable and manageable."
