1 OfficeUS Agenda



Agenda

[PREORDER]

OfficeUS Agenda is the first of four publications to be published as part of the OfficeUS project and it serves as the catalog for the exhibition. The Agenda weaves together the last hundred years of architecture production through themes and concepts of Modernization, US architectural firms, and their exports through a collection of essays and visual narratives. We have commissioned thirteen essays representing new scholarship, that include a wide range of viewpoints on the subject by notable scholars such as Barry Bergdoll, Beatriz Colomina, Jorge Otero-Pailos and Keller Easterling. These will be illustrated in part with archival photographs donated by Erica Stoller of Esto. The visual narratives serve as foils to the essays, related, but different and are on the topics of the US Cold War Expo program, Albert Kahn's factories in Russia, the Hilton Hotels and the race to build the world's tallest building.
