Iconic: Perspectives on the Man-Made World

Out of stock. Delivery time unknown.


PDN-award-winning photographer Brian Vanden Brink's keen sense of how cultural changes bear out in the structures we build is the central theme in this striking follow-up to the award-winning Ruin. Iconography runs throughout the book, as each structure presented is iconic either for its unique contribution to the field of architecture or for its representation of American culture. Stunning color and black-and-white photographs are paired with short captions explaining both the architectural significance and the image's personal importance to Brian. Examples include one-room schools, country fairs, drive-thru hotdog shacks, lighthouses, France's Reims Cathedral, and the Salk Institute.
