Description

This title features one hundred grand architecture walks from New York to Connecticut, around New Jersey, into the eastern edge of Pennsylvania, and on to Delaware. Welcome to the fascinating world of ""Architecture Walks"" - from reflections of three hundred years of history to expressions of the most modern design, authors Lucy D. Rosenfeld and Marina Harrison guide you on a tour of inspiring, informative, and aesthetically intriguing architectural treasures in and around the New York area. Early colonial saltboxes, as-yet-unfinished contemporary structures on college campuses, nineteenth-century follies, Gilded Age palaces, lighthouses, windmills, romantic ruins - the pages of this delightful book, filled with adventures, treat readers to sites within approximately two hours' driving time from New York City. With book in hand readers will marvel at college campuses, small villages, planned and utopian communities, National Historic Sites, castles and forts, churches and temples of architectural interest, and even a Buddhist monastery, all in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, the eastern edge of Pennsylvania, and Delaware. By including descriptions of architectural styles, suggestions for special adventures, and lists of jaunts arranged by architect or designer, architectural style, and particular types of sites, Rosenfeld and Harrison help make day trips even more enjoyable. Whether explorers or armchair adventurers, readers of all ages will find something that captures their interest in the nearly one hundred sites and forty photos included in ""Architecture Walks"". ""Architecture Walks"" takes readers out and around...Connecticut - the Glass House of Philip Johnson, New Canaan, three eighteenth-century architectural treasures on the shore, and Gillette Castle and Goodspeed Opera House, East Haddam; New York State - Usonia, a community of Frank Lloyd Wright homes, Bannerman's Castle, Pollepel Island, and Old Bethpage Village Restoration; New Jersey - Princeton University: contemporary style meets Gothic design, the Arts and Crafts aesthetic, Morris Plains, and an eighteenth-century Moravian village built of stone; and, Delaware and Pennsylvania - the historic river town of New Castle Delaware, Starrucca Viaduct, Susquehanna, and a French-style chateau in rural Pennsylvania.
