New York Architecture Book Fair

Slide Catalogue Paris Haussmann  Lan 01

On September 23, Storefront for Art and Architecture will launch the New York Architecture Book Fair with a day-long event at the Great Hall at the Cooper Union : Architecture Books / Yet to be Written / 1982-2017-2052. The event will ask architects to think about the past and future of architectural publication. Each participant has been asked to present a book published in the past 35 years that they consider to be essential reading on contemporary architecture, as well as to imagine a publication for the future, a “book yet to be written.”

At the conference, Storefront will also present BOOKS-NOW, a selection of signed architecture books published in 2016-17. The exhibition catalogue PARIS HAUSSMANN: A Model’s Relevance has been selected to be part of this initiative.

Fully documented and illustrated, the exhibition catalogue was conceived as a retro-atlas of Haussmann’s territory. The bilingual publication is available for sale in bookstores in France, internationally and online.
