5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By LXL on July 16, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is an amazing compilation of drawings and written ideas from a truly visionary American architect, one considered to be among the 'inventors' of the skyscraper. Ferris was a prime force in realizing the vision of the 20th century metropolis which defined the idealism and unprecedented scale of the great American cities. This book is also a wonderful reminder, in this age of digital imagery and 3D visualization tools, of what power and beauty can be conveyed through the traditional medium of pencil and graphite. Ferris was a brilliant draughtsman and his rendering style unusually dramatic compared to most architectural renderings of his time.

Power in Buildings not only featues excellent replications of Ferriss' work, but also includes auto-biographical commentary about his travels to American cities and his experiences as an illustrator in various architectural offices. A good read and wonderful images printed on fine quality paper!

Nice Collection of precises Architectural hand drawings.
Recommended to all those who enjoy looking at art and architecture. Also recommended for architecture students who will find these works extremely inspiring where paper and pencil drawings can give a timeless look from a time where these instruments were the key to success. Awesome book from a master of hand drawing.
