Photography by Andrew Garn, Introduction by Eric P. Nash
New York City, arguably the world’s Art Deco capital, is well known for its iconic towers. In a new book, New York Art Deco: Birds, Beasts & Blooms, photographer ANDREW GARN and writer ERIC P. NASH illustrate the myriad ways that Art Deco is drawn in steel, stone, terra cotta, brass, and bronze upon the city's great buildings. Featuring both the legendary landmarks and little known treasures, this new collection of Garn's photographs richly illustrates the metropolitan menagerie. Join us for a visual feast of Birds, Beasts & Blooms.
Founded in 1996, The Skyscraper Museum is a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. Located in New York City, the world's first and foremost vertical metropolis, the museum celebrates the city's rich architectural heritage and examines the historical forces and individuals that have shaped its successive skylines. Through exhibitions, programs, and publications, the museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence.
