Minoru Yamasaki - Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World

€ 69,50
Born to Japanese immigrant parents in Seattle, Minoru Yamasaki (1912-1986) became one of the towering figures of midcentury architecture, even appearing on the cover of Time magazine in 1963. His self-proclaimed humanist designs merged the modern materials and functional considerations of postwar American architecture with traditional elements such as arches and colonnades. Yamasaki’s celebrated and iconic projects of the 1950s and ’60s, including the Lambert - St. Louis Airport and the U.S. Science Pavilion in Seattle, garnered popular acclaim.
