Jam-packed with hundreds of specially commissioned photographs accompanied by a lively, authoritative text, New Urban Giants tells the story of the design and building of thirty-one remarkable structures around the world, including corporate headquarters, residential towers, and state-of-the-art hotels. The text places each in its historical context, revealing the technological advances that made each building possible, and the social and economic climate that made each necessary. Hundreds of close-up photographs, panoramic shots, and architects’ plans demonstrate the innovations that make each of these structures a pivotal element of their city’s skyline. Readers tour the HSB Turning Tower in Malmö, Sweden, which is based on a sculpture by Santiago Calatrava. Photographs reveal the unique incremental angles that occur from the ground to the top floor, resulting in a full 90-degree twist. Other groundbreaking structures highlighted include: the sleek New York Times Tower in Manhattan, Highcliff—a 75-story residential tower in Hong Kong—and Aurora Place in Sydney, Australia with its unique geometric shape. Taking readers from Dubai to Tokyo to Vienna, this is an architectural tour not to be missed by professional architects and design enthusiasts alike.
