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.
