Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
25 selected, half realized and half not projects are very well depicted in this survey by excellent photos, renderings, plans, sections, site plans, models, sketches, details, hard line presentation drawings, etc. There is a balance between larger photos and more numerous tech. drawings. The book "Skyscrapers: The New Millennium" (ISBN: 3791323431) includes more projects, but fewer tech. drawings.

Format: Paperback
This book by MOMA is tremendously informative and visual. Great images from drawings, renderings, models and actual building photos really enhance the viewing of this book. There is also a corresponding exhibition at the MOMA QNS from July 2004-Sept 2004.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A coffe table book..its a mixture of architectural renderings of never-to be build structures with 'wannabe' structural engineering book..level of your disappointment will depend on your expectations..i expect more thorough and detailed explanation of tall building-structural-architectural design problems..
