Sustainable Skyscrapers: Vertical Ecologies and Urban Ecosystems
Paperback, 64 pages, $25
The skyscraper is architecture's ultimate icon. The term itself conjures images of seemingly impossible, awe-inspiring loft, and as a design proposition the skyscraper raises some of architecture's biggest questions. Is it possible for a sense of community to develop among inhabitants of a vertical, stratified environment? What is the essence of a slender form? This book, the latest installment in CCA's Architecture Studio Series, documents several innovative answers by CCA students and faculty. It is designed by Mike Hu and Mai Ogiva, Graphic Design undergraduates in CCA's Sputnik studio, and edited by Ila Berman (director of Architecture) and Nataly Gattegno (Architecture faculty).Read the rest
