AIA New Jersey Guidebook: 150 Best Buildings and Places
(Paper $29.95, October 2011, 978-0-8135-5126-5) reveals the state’s rich architectural legacy and the eclectic mix of periods and styles that make it unique. Only in New Jersey can you find the cradle of America’s industrial revolution, stately Victorian inns, and distinctive “Doo Wop style” motels. The volume includes both justly renowned buildings and hidden architectural gems. The book gives equal attention to the works of such modern masters as Louis Kahn and Frank Lloyd Wright and to the ballparks and diners that give the Garden State its local flavor. Stunning color photographs capture the beauty of New Jersey’s architectural heritage. Thorough descriptions of each building explain its historical significance and architectural features in clear, direct language.
