Skyscrapers by Judith Dupré (Könemann, 1996) outlines the history of the world’s most famous and important skyscrapers.
Skyscrapers chronicles the transformation of landscapes throughout the world as skyscrapers became the favored twentieth-century expression of cultural and economic progress (…) From the ancient pyramids of Egypt to the extraordinary Chrysler Building, and unparalleled melding of art and engineering, every civilization has expressed in buildings both sacred and secular the eternal quest to reach ever upward towards the sky. Skyscrapers invites you to enjoy the stunning works born of that quest.
