These are always popular, so we thought we would flag up the new Concrete New York Map by Blue Crow Media.
Yes, the latest instalment (number 10) in this architectural map series reaches New York, offering a guide to New York City’s concrete architecture.
It’s a two-sided guide, features a map of selected buildings in New York City, an introduction by Brooklyn-based writer Allison C. Meier, photographs by Jason Woods, and of course, details of over fifty concrete buildings and structures.
Within that guide are pioneering concrete forms like Frank Lloyd Wright’s spiraling Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, as well as Marcel Breuer’s Brutalist Begrisch Hall and Eero Saarinen’s TWA Flight Center. Lesser known buildings and structures too, like Pier Luigi Nervi’s George Washington Bridge Bus Station and contemporary works such as Dattner Architects’ Spring Street Salt Shed and Steven Holl Architects’ Hunters Point Community Library.
It’s the basis of an architectural holiday or just an interesting insight into concrete in NYC. Either way, it’s good value at £8. You can pick one up from the Blue Crow Media website.
