High-Rise: Idea and RealityArchitecture, Urbanism
Edited by Museum Fur Gestaltung Zurich and Andreas Janser
Hatje Cantz, Germany, 2011. First edition. 200 color illustrations. Near Fine, unmarked
Did you know that around half of the world’s extant highrise structures were erected only within the past ten years? ‘Highrise: Idea and Reality’ offers a comprehensive examination of the highrise phenomenon and its surprisingly recent international ubiquity. A wide range of contemporary highrises are explored in their broadest cultural and civic contexts–contexts which can vary greatly from continent to continent, and from culture to culture–illuminating not only the effects of these imposing buildings upon their immediate landscapes, but also the everyday lives of their inhabitants.
