Beschreibung

From the 1920s through the 1950s, Hugh Ferriss was America's most celebrated architectural artist, famous for his dramatic charcoal renderings. First published in 1929, 'The Metropolis of Tomorrow' was the quintessential document of the prosperity of the 1920s, as well as a personal manifesto of visionary urbanism. In it, Ferriss drew and discussed the American skyscraper and presented his romantic vision for an ideal city of the future. This fascimile edition of this classic captures all the drama of the original volume, reprinting over 60 of Ferris's striking chiaroscuro renderings and his written commentary. In addition, included are over 40 additional drawings and photographs and an insightful essay by Carol Willis (author of 'Form Follows Finance') on Ferris's career. This historic document is available from Princeton Architectural Press for the first time in over five years. Some fading on spine otherwise a very nice copy, clean tight free of any marks.

Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

Princeton Architectural Press should be applauded for rescuing this book and making it available to a wide audience. Scott Gutterman, "Architectural Record" A book like this lives or dies by the quality of the drawings. And here Ferris's dark, chiaroscuro renderings retain their atmospheric impact. Howard Mansfield, "Small Press "
