Architectural Guide New York

A Critic's Guide to 100 Iconic Buildings in New York from 1999 to 2020

The Architectural Guide New York is the unusual and personal approach of an architecture critic to one of the perhaps most fascinating and best-known cities in the world. The mission of this guide lies not only in the documentation and presentation of the buildings; it is also that the New York-based author and curator Vladimir Belogolovsky wants to celebrate the city's transformative energy. In order to achieve this he brings together 100 of the most original structures built in New York City since 1999. The selection covers buildings realised by the world’s most renowned architects, in a period when their creations were celebrated as art, and personal styles were encouraged by the media, critics and clients. The featured time span begins with the rise of the starchitect in the late 1990s, and ends in the present day.

Many of the buildings were designed either by foreign architects or those who settled in the city and now call it home. Through witty, incisive commentary, catchy nick­names - such as Guillotine, Peacock, Shark’s Fin, Turtle Shell, and Woodpecker - and quotes from the author’s interviews with the architects this singular guide allows readers to see many of New York’s contemporary icons in a new way.
