Well, at least they’re popping up in print form. And if you can’t travel the world to see them in person, maybe this is the next best thing. And make it even more fun by referencing the Tallest Buildings website we mentioned in an earlier post!
Anton Radevsky is responsible for the engineering of the pop-ups themselves. He also designed pop-ups for the The History of Architecture Pop-Up book (currently out of print). David Sokol is the writer, contributing interesting facts and history about each of these innovative buildings which, in many ways, shaped the direction of architecture and technology after they were built.
This book isn’t easy to find quite yet. You can purchase right from Rizzoli, the publisher, or you can pre-order from Amazon.
