New York is as dynamic city as any in the world, ever changing and always, it seems, in the process of re-inventing itself. This is no less true of its architecture than it is of its people. Because it is a world city that attracts talent from every corner of the earth, its buildings during the last fifteen year have been conceived and designed by a multicultural pantheon of architects. Whether Philippe Starck's hotel interior renovations, OMA's Prada store, Taniguchi's MOMA addition or the many projects built by distinguished American architects, this little guide provides a concise overview for anyone interested in the architecture of the city.
