Skyscraper: The Politics and Power of Building New York City in the 20th Century.
Flowers, Benjamin.
Skyscraper: The Politics and Power of Building New York City in the 20th Century.
Examining the life and times of New York City's most iconic buildings, Georgia Tech architecture instructor Flowers reveals not only how the city's skyscrapers are inextricably tied to the city's economic booms and busts, planning and day-to-day functioning, but also how the skyscraper "is a material expression" of social conditions and personal relationships, "of the course chartered by capital" through urban tribes.
