Overview

Stylish guides to the physical foundations of America’s leading cities

Showcasing prominent commercial structures and the talented architects who brought them to life, these pictorial histories contain outstanding photography of some of the leading cities in the United States. Offering insight into the diversity and progression of metropolitan architecture, different firms represented in this series discuss the influences found in their featured work. Illuminating the unique and defining characteristics of each building, the process that brought it to fruition, and the impact each structure had on the community at large, these artistic chronicles will delight lovers of architecture, travel, and urban living. Central Florida's most stunning examples of community development are exquisitely featured, including Parramore's purposeful renovation, the rustic bayou stylings of the House of Blues Orlando, and the impressive Orange County Convention Center—the second largest in the world.
