Crosbie Publishes Book on New York Architects
Michael J. Crosbie, associate professor and chair of the Department of Architecture, CETA, recently published a book on New York architects. New York Dozen: Gen X Architects, published by Images Publishing Group, explores how young architects in New York are finding new ways to practice, experimenting with cutting-edge materials, and expressing changing values in their work.
Crosbie profiles the work of 12 firms making a name in the city that never sleeps – the latest of a new generation of practitioners that are being challenged by a new economy. Crosbie presented a lecture on the book and signed copies at a special pre-release book talk event at the New York Center for Architecture in Manhattan in June, sponsored by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and Oculus magazine.
