My favorite Bartos book. A detailed document of the United Nations building. Includes three essays: Architecture, Accident and Design, And the Future? by Christopher Hitchens. Taken between 1989 and 1993, Bartos's color photos of U.N. headquarters capture a building trapped in a 1950s timewarp. So optimistic and modern when first built (Le Corbusier was a member of the Board of Design), it is now a bit worn, much like its tenant. Item #20746
