Minimalist architecture has graced New York for over fifty years. While other styles have come and gone, the simple, perfect expression of space and form that it affords has perennially informed all manner of New York spaces.
This exquisitely photographed homage to the minimalist aesthetic presents twenty two representative projects, including Rem Koolhaas' Prada store and Apple's flagship computer store in SoHo. Each is accompanied by brief reminiscences from their architects, reflecting on the spirit of the city as revealed in their works. It closes with a final discussion of the impact of minimalism on New York's architectural icons.
