Celebrating the publication of New York Rising

New York Rising : An Illustrated History from the Durst Collection
The Monacelli Press, 2018
Published in association with The Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University

From the first European settlement in the seventeenth century through the skyscrapers and large-scale urban planning schemes of the late twentieth century, this book presents a broad historical survey, illustrated with images drawn largely from the rich archival resources of the Durst Collection at Avery Library. Authors Kate Ascher and Thomas Mellins with ten contributing scholars — the late Hilary Ballon, Ann Buttenwieser, Andrew Dolkart, David King, Reinhold Martin, Richard Plunz, Lynne B. Sagalyn, Hilary Sample, Russell Shorto, and Carol Willis — delved into the collection assisted by Chris Sala (Avery Architecture Librarian and Durst Collection curator) to select objects that reflect their own areas of interest and expertise.
