This global examination of boundary-pushing architecture challenges our perceptions of how buildings ought to look--and reveals how even the most unusual constructions can achieve iconic status. In this fascinating exploration of 100 controversial buildings, readers will discover not only how each building wasconstructed, but also the motivation behind its design, and the ensuing debates. Readers will learn why erecting the Longaberger Basket Company headquarters was no picnic; why the Guggenheim Museum in New York City inspired hate mail from artists who would later display their works there;and whether Chicago's Sears Tower or the Petronas Towers inKuala Lumpur won the "spire debate," officially becoming theworld's tallest building. Thematically grouping these buildingsinto categories that reflect their most pronounced features, architectural historian John Zukowsky discusses each structurein detail, interweaving relevant biographical factors and socioculturalinfluences that impacted the architects' distinctivedesigns. The result is a lively, generously illustrated synthesis ofdiverse architectural values, and a fascinating look at the pastcentury's most innovative architects. From St. Louis's famousarch to the"Bird's Nest" Olympic Stadium in Beijing, readerswill learn the rich and complex stories behind the world's moreunconventional structures.
