Building New York : the rise and rise of the greatest city on Earth by Bruce Marshall( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The evolution of New York's built environment is chronicled in this history of both its architectural masterpieces and its brilliantly engineered infrastructure. With the immediacy only photography can capture we witness New York emerging in the years following the Civil War, spreading uptown, enfolding Central Park, bridging the rivers, tunneling the bedrock, scraping the sky." "As materials change from brick and brownstone to steel and later plate glass - a development supported, in part, by newly harnessed electricity and elevators - we can relive such moments as muddy Longacre Square's rebirth as neon-lit Times Square in the wake of the uptown relocation of the theaters and the city's "newspaper of record." Building New York traces the transformation of Fifth Avenue into a "millionaires' row" and the eastern edge of the Park into a museum enclave. It catalogues not merely the skyscrapers and public buildings but the department stores, stations and hotels, churches and airports, expressways and housing projects." "Always the most self-conscious of cities, New York came of age with the camera. This incredible hoard of pictures has been sourced from the 70 million images owned or represented by Getty Images with many originating from Time & Life Pictures and the Museum of the City of New York. These are the very pictures that helped create New York's larger-than-life image."--Jacket
Building London : the making of a modern metropolis by Bruce Marshall( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of building in London is both fascinating and remarkable. Today the City of London is still confined to a square mile enclave, as it was when its residents crossed the river to see Shakespeare's newest plays in Southwark. At that time, up the river was another city - Westminster, seat of the Royal Court, the Law Courts, and Parliament. Villages - such as Islington, Bermondsey, and Paddington - grew in the glow of these centers of prosperity and power. Within two hundred years, the two cities and their satellites fused together, making London the largest city on earth and the first to reach a population of one million." "In the nineteenth century, London's population grew to six million, and the building boom began. Poorer people and dirty industries congregated in the east while the better-off population lived and worked in the west. When train services made commuting possible, the new middle class settled in the leafier enclaves of Battersea, Pimlico, and Putney. The Victorians built edifices befitting the rulers of the world, the crown jewel of which was the new Houses of Parliament." "Bricks and mortar, "Tudorbethan" gables and faux-half timbers filled London throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Then, during World War II, German bombers laid waste much of the East End and Lambeth. Postwar London saw the arrival of the Modern Movement, the wholesale use of poured concrete, glass, and steel, as well as the high-rise. Now in the twenty-first century, London's architecture is as vibrant as ever; the last ten years have seen the building of many of London's greatest landmarks, including the Swiss Re-Headquarters, the London Eye, and the new Wembley Stadium." "Building London is a visual record of a remarkable story and details the relentless progress of building in London. We see, step-by-step, how the city was built and meet the great architects and engineers. We learn about where Londoners lived, how they were entertained, where they worked, shopped, and worshipped. The book is organized thematically and within that, chronologically, with rare images from the earliest days of photography as well as evocative and compelling photographs from the last one hundred years. All of London's iconic buildings are featured and extensively illustrated with extraordinary photographs from the vast archives of Getty Images."--Jacket

Paris is the most visited city in the world. This romantic metropolis has for centuries captured the hearts and imaginations of countless writers, poets, musicians, artists, and travellers. Paris is renowned for the splendid architecture of its individual buildings and, even more so, for the harmony of the city’s overall composition. In Paris there is a uniformity and majesty to the limestone façades of its residences and palaces. It is a city in which urban planning has long played an important part. Thematic essays bring the history to life and detailed picture captions explain the ingenuity and inventiveness of architects and engineers, masons and glaziers, sculptors and landscapers
