              This guide to New York City's exciting new public space explores Vessel from top to bottom, inside and out, and from beginning to completion. A public space like no other, Vessel was designed by the renowned Heatherwick Studio to give New Yorkers and visitors a unique vertical ex...perience. In this book, readers can witness every part of its development, from initial designs to the finished structure. They'll learn why and how Vessel came to be and the significance of its placement in the Nelson Byrd Woltz-designed Public Square and Gardens at Hudson Yards. An essay by architecture critic Paul Goldberger explores the importance of public spaces, while additional texts explain the evolution of the neighborhood, discuss Vessel's dramatic design, and capture the responses of locals and tourists. A wealth of photography follows the structure's incredible path to completion and the final result, with a total of 2,500 steps, 154 interconnected staircases, 80 viewing landings, and one mile of pathways reaching 150 feet into the air. Documenting one of the most complex pieces of architectural steelwork ever built at this scale, this book offers a fascinating, detailed, and unforgettable look at Vessel.

              Communitas stands in a class by itself: a fresh and original theoretic contribution to the art of building cities. Such a book does not appear often... a witty, penetrating, provocative and, above all, ... a wise book; for it deals with the underlying values and purposes, politic...al and moral, on which planning of any sort must be based...'Lewis Mumford

              An exhilarating, splendidly illustrated, entirely new look at the history of baseball: told through the stories of the vibrant and ever-changing ballparks where the game was and is staged, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic. From the earliest corrals of the mid-18...00s (Union Grounds in Brooklyn was a saloon in the open air ), to the much mourned parks of the early 1900s (Detroit's Tiger Stadium, Cincinnati's Palace of the Fans), to the stadiums we fill today, Paul Goldberger makes clear the inextricable bond between the American city and America's favorite pastime. In the changing locations and architecture of our ballparks, Goldberger reveals the manifestations of a changing society: the earliest ballparks evoked Victorian society in the accommodations--bleachers for the riffraff, grandstands for the middle-class; the concrete donuts of the 1950s and 60s made plain television's grip on the public's attention and the new need for stadiums that could also accommodate football; and more recent ballparks, like Baltimore's Camden Yards, signal a new way forward for stadium design and for baseball's role in urban development. Throughout, Goldberger shows us the ways in which baseball's history--its concurrent rise with the railway system, the origins of the American and National Leagues, the first stolen base--is clued into the important architectural, material, engineering, and site details and requirements that shaped our most beloved stadiums. A fascinating, exuberant ode to the Edens at the heart of our cities--where dreams are as limitless as the outfields.

              Richard Meier, Architect: Volume 5 comprehensively documents Meier's work since 2004. This extensively illustrated presentation vividly conveys the purity and power of Meier's vision.

Richard Meier received his architectural training at Cornell University and began his career in the early 1960s designing private residential projects whose elegant modernist style and white facades have become icons of modern architecture.

He has received numerous awards for his work, including the Pritzker Prize for Architecture and the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects.
