The Drama of Black

Spotlighting more than 150 structures from the last 1,000 years, the book Black: Architecture in Monochrome from Phaidon presents text and fascinating photographs of houses, churches, libraries, skyscrapers, and other buildings from some of the world’s leading architects, including Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, and Eero Saarinen, David Adjaye, Jean Nouvel, Peter Marino, and Steven Holl. The visually rich book casts a new eye on the beauty and the drama in the built world, and will be released October 9.
