A fascinating study of the man who did much to change the form of the modern skyscraper. Hood's functionalism and artistic sense and his psychological and technical tactics as an innovator are spotlighted. The book reveals Hood's method of working on actual projects, such as the Rockefeller Centre and the Daily News Building, with the personalities and business politics, as well as structural details, materials and use of space.

Raymond Hood came onto the American architectural scene later in life than his contemporaries, but his contributions over the span of his twelve-year career continue to evoke praise and appreciation. Hood’s design of much of Rockefeller Center shines as a prime example of his creative genius. Here, in this essay by architecture critic Carter Wiseman, is Hood’s story.

Excerpt: Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier (French pronunciation: October 6, 1887 - August 27, 1965), was a Swiss-born French architect, designer, urbanist, writer and painter, famous for being one of the pioneers of what now is called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout central Europe, India, Russia, one in North and several in South America. He was a pioneer in studies of modern high design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities. Le Corbusier adopted his pseudonym in the 1920s, allegedly deriving it in part from the name of a distant ancestor, "Lecorbesier." However, it appears to have been an earlier (and somewhat unkind) nickname, which he simply decided to keep. He was awarded the Frank...

From the art deco factories of the 1920s through to the skyscraper boom of the twenty-first century, Modern London takes you on an illustrated tour of the capital’s ever-changing landscape. Shaped variously by war, economics, population growth and design trends, the city has been moulded by some of the greatest modern architects and to this day remains a centre of building design and experimentation. Through intricate graphic illustrations and accessible entertaining text, London’s streets, structures and transport systems of the last century are brought to life. Discover long lost treasures such as the Firestone Factory and marvel at modern–day masterpieces like the London Aquatics centre; delight in previously vilified social housing projects such as the Balfron Tower, and discover the drama behind bold, eccentric designs like the ‘Cheesegrater’. The city’s skyline can change in an instant; Modern London invites you to sit back and survey the scene so far.

Humor for Smart People is the first book in the HFSP series. The book covers a variety of subjects from A to Z. It will be followed by several books with more narrow themes, like Job Humor for Smart People and Couples Humor for Smart People.I have been asked about the title and whether the book can be enjoyed by people who are not so smart. Do you know anybody who doesnt think he is smart? If I was browsing the humor section of a bookstore and saw a book entitled Humor for Smart People, I would have to pick it up and look at it. Wouldnt you? The fact is the book can be enjoyed by everyone, and all of the smartest people I know like to laugh. Enjoy!The cartoons are by outstanding 21st century professional artist John Nickerson. He is as adept with Adobe Photoshop as I am with my digital voice recorder.Raymond Hood
