Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847825086, Paperback)

This is the third monograph to feature the highly esteemed architecture of Kohn Pedersen Fox. Headquartered in New York and London, KPF initially distinguished itself through its dedicated attention to the development of the most characteristic and significant American building type, the skyscraper. KPF has since achieved international stature with their brand of refined modernism. Among the recent projects included in this monograph are: the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, D.C., Baruch College in New York City, the Gannett/USA Today Building in McLean, Virginia and the Rodin Museum in Seoul, Korea. These projects–as well as others in Tokyo, Warsaw, Honolulu, Taiwan, Buenos Aires, Singapore, and The Netherlands–are brought together in over 500 stunning full color photographs and 250 architectural drawings.

The structures themselves—the overwhelming majority of which are shown finished—are renowned for their exploration and continuation of the legacy of modern architecture. The sleek, cutting-edge buildings represent the firm's diverse designs for institutional, academic, and corporate clients around the world. As befits their skyscraper-architect reputation, KPF has designed what will be, upon completion in Shanghai, the world's tallest building.
