American City Series - St Louis Architecture: Three Centuries of Classic Design

Images Publishing


Robert Sharoff

  • St. Louisis one of the most architecturally impressive cities in the United States, with a heritage of innovative design stretching back to the early 1800s. This is reflected in the architecture of the downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods.

    More than just about any city in America, St. Louis embraced the imposing forms and lush ornamentation of the Beaux Arts tradition. Indeed, one can make the argument that only Washington, D.C. in the United States has a more impressive collection of classically inspired structures.

    American City: St. Louis Architecture is the first large-format book on the city's architecture since the 1920s, and includes over 100 new colour photographs and text for 50 of the citys most important structures. These range from such 19th-century masterpieces as Louis Sullivans Wainwright Building, Alfred Mullets Old Post Office and Theodore Link's Union Station,to Eero Saarinens Gateway Arch, Tadao Andaos Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts Building and Maya Lins recently completed Ellen Clark HopePlaza.
