Samenvatting

Minimalism in architecture has existed in New York for over fifty years. While other styles have come and gone, the simple, perfect expression of space and form that minimalism affords have perennial informed New York spaces-residential, commercial, and public alike. Now that people's attention is again focused not only on the New York skyline but also on the history and influence of Big Apple buildings, the time is right for this homage that presents twenty-two most representative minimalist projects in New York. Each featured project not only includes exquisite photography, but also brief reminiscences from each architect, reflecting on the spirit of the city as revealed in their works. A final discussion of New York's architectural icons rounds out the book. nnNew York Minimalism is a fascinating journey through recent history's most compelling examples of residential, commercial, and public architecture in New York, a celebration of architectural achievement in the city that never sleeps. nnAUTHOR PROFILE:nAurora Cuito studied architecture in Barcelona and has worked in several architecture studios in Barcelona and New York. She is the author of Lofts: Good Ideas.
