Kohn Pedersen Fox, one of America's premier architectural firms, has distinguished itself through dedicated attention to the development of the most characteristic and significant American building type, the skyscraper. This monograph documents fifty of the firm's most important projects of the last six years. Following a portfolio of two seminal works, 333 Wacker Drive in Chicago and the Procter & Gamble General Office Complex in Cincinnati, are presentations of such elegant and critically acclaimed corporate buildings as the Capital Cities/ABC Headquarters, Rockefeller Plaza West, and 712 Fifth Avenue, all in New York; the Mellon Bank Center in Philadelphia; the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, D.C.; 550 South Hope Street in Los Angeles; the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas; the Newport Harbor Art Museum in Newport Beach, California; the Niagara Toll Station at Niagara Falls; the Disney Institute and Town Center in Osceola, Florida; and the Concert Tower and First Hawaiian Center, both in Honolulu.
Also featured in this volume is a selection of Kohn Pedersen Fox's vast body of international work, including 1250 Boulevard Rene-Levesque Ouest in Montreal; the State House/58-71 High Holborn, Goldman Sachs European Headquarters, and several projects for Canary Wharf, all in London; Mainzer Landstrasse 58 in Frankfurt and the Hanseatic Trade Center in Hamburg; the Warsaw Bank Center in Poland; the Coraceros Complex in Chile; the Singapore Arts Center; and buildings in Sydney, Jakarta, and Tokyo. Institutional projects such as the United States Courthouse/Foley Square in New York and the University of Pennsylvania/Revlon Campus Center in Philadelphia and residential designs in New York and Vermont complete this thorough portrayal of the firm's recent work.
