Five books on architecture

For the Independent, Will Coldwell came up with a reading list on architecture.

One book on the list:
Nearest thing to Heaven: The Empire State Building and American Dreams by Mark Kingwell

In a scholarly tribute to the classic skyscraper, Kingwell charts the life of this iconic building from conception to construction and, by placing it deep in the American psyche, offers new ways we can understand its cultural significance.
Read about a novel on the list.
