High-Rise Living by Andrew Weaving

High-rise architecture has provided some of the most technically innovative and aesthetically interesting buildings of recent years, despite its checkered-and often controversial-history. It has also become some of the most desirable property available in cities throughout the world. Andrew Weaving hands you the entrance keys to twenty-five different apartments-with-a-view in this rich collection of fabulous, spare photographs that capture unique views of these buildings and their highly livable interiors. High-rise Living features architecture and interior living spaces for high-rise condominiums and apartments in Europe, Asia, Canada, Australia, and the United States, divided in three categories: Classic, Now, and Future. An engaging introduction recounts the highlights of high-rise architecture from its genesis in ideal socialist cities to its contemporary ideal as a solution to environmental and world population housing issues, and covers the work of such architectural greats as Louis Sullivan, Auguste Perret, Frank Lloyd Wright (yes, he did towers!), Le Corbusier, Richard Neutra, Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Erno Goldfinger, Bertrand Goldberg, I. M. Pei, the Archigram Group, Kisho Kurokawa, and others. High-rise Living is a fresh look at modern, architecturally designed spaces in which to live, right in the heart of the city. Andrew Weaving is a true high-rise aficionado who lives in one himself in Londons Canary Wharf.
