A collection of visual essays and opinions relating to American architecture and urban construction. In this very well printed book the photographs on coated and the typography on rough paper complement one another nicely. Silver opening photos lead you straight into the book. The images of the richness of things make a good combination with the tight design. This isn’t just a photobook: it’s an architectural overview in which effective photography and clear typography come together in an extraordinary way.
