[EAN: 9780393730159], [PU: W. W. Norton & Company March 1998], Architecture|Methods & Materials, Art|Clip Art, Technology|Engineering|Civil, The first book on Bogardus's life and work, Cast-Iron Architecture in America describes how iron architecture remade the face of American cities in the mid-nineteenth century, following the appearance of cast iron on the industrial scene in eighteenth-century England and Europe. It documents the role played by Bogardus, who patented his method for cast-iron construction in 1850 and championed its use in America's growing cities. Cast iron fell out of favor, supplanted by the steel frame; cast-iron buildings languished, decayed, and fell to the bulldozers of urban renewal in the 1950s and '60s. Only in recent decades has nineteenth-century urban architecture, including cast iron, come to be fully appreciated, and the surviving buildings rescued, restored, and reused. Four by Bogardus are recognized as landmarks. The first book on the life and work of 19th-century American inventor and entrepreneur James Bogardus, known for his unique grinding mill and other patented devices. However, his enduring claim to fame is his cast-iron structures, forerunners of the modern skyscraper. Modern interest in Bogardus stems from the historic preservation movement. His four surviving buildings in New York are recognized landmarks. Illustrated. Very nice clean, tight copy free of any marks. Wrapped in complimentary Brodart dust jacket protector.
