Praise

“Lavishly illustrated…meticulously and lucidly deconstructs the design.”
The New York Times
 
“[An] eye-widening piece of illustrated deconstruction…on the most enduring symbol of city life.”
Wired
 
“Images of diaphragm walls, skeletal frame systems and elevator shafts may not sound like a colourful depiction of the high life, but a new intricate detailing of the inner workings of the mighty skyscraper might well be one of the most interesting books published all year.”
The Independent (UK)
 
“A remarkably plain-language reexamination of tall buildings in a sustainability-conscious age…a laudable, one-stop summary that goes beyond lists and photographs of tall buildings and gives a rich grounding in vertical basics that all students of cities both need and deserve”
The Atlantic Cities
