Janser, Andres.
High-Rise: Idea and Reality.
About half of the high-rises around the world were built since the beginning of the twenty-first century. This construction boom has turned the high-rise into a formative element of the most important sphere of collective life today: the city. Its symbolic power, however, often seems to be larger than life. This publication shows contemporary buildings and projects in their cultural and urban contexts, which, depending on whether they are in Europe or Asia, for example, can be very different. Numerous works of contemporary photography comment on the realities of contemporary high-rises in an increasingly urbanized world.
