RED: ARCHITECTURE IN MONOCHROME
From the earliest structures to today’s contemporary creations, red has been one of the most traditional, and, at the same time, most cutting-edge, colors in the built world. This book brings together 150 of the finest examples of red buildings – from the deep-red and stainless steel of LA’s Petersen Automotive Museum to Moscow’s red-brick State Museum and beyond. Its visual pairings juxtapose striking works in a fresh, new approach to looking at and understanding architecture.
