MODERNIST DESIGN & BAUHAUS. The Empire State Building is the landmark book on one of the world s most notable landmarks. Since its publication in 1995, John Tauranac s book, focused on the inception and construction of the building, has stood as the most comprehensive account of the structure. Moreover, it is far more than a work in architectural history; Tauranac tells a larger story of the politics of urban development in and through the interwar years. In a new epilogue to the Cornell edition, Tauranac highlights the continuing resonance and influence of the Empire State Building in the rapidly changing post-9/11 cityscape.
