“Eliot and John W. Cross were the perfect patrician designers. They put their Ivy League and Beaux-Arts connections into play in 1907, and quickly gained a practice in discreet townhouses, clubs, country houses and jewel-like banks. But the sumptuous illustrations also show an unexpected aspect of their career in the late 1920s, as they developed a specialty of flashy skyscrapers in devoutly modernistic style. The photographer for the book, Jonathan Wallen, took spectacular close-ups of the spiky, vibrating tower [the RCA Victor building] that show things you’d never imagine from the street: incised brickwork, explosive medallions, chevrons and stylized, masklike faces. The RCA Victor building gives the Chrysler Building a run for its money.” —The New York Times

“Visitors snap photos of Tiffany's windows on New York's Fifth Avenue every day, but how many look up at the dignified 1940 building that rises above? The office towers, banks, luxury apartment houses, and country estates built by architect brothers John Walter and Eliot Cross hide in plain sight, frequently upstaged by showier modernist neighbors. New York Transformed draws the spotlight back to the work of these forgotten masters, from Mayfields, an idyllic 1921 New Jersey mansion that became the home of future designer Sister Parish (who termed the house 'perfection'), to the 'great symmetrical palazzo' of One Sutton Place South in Manhattan (1926). Proof that these traditionalists had a wild side can be found the fantastical gothic effigies atop their 1931 General Electric skyscraper.” —Elle Decor

“Architect brothers John and Eliot Cross helped forge the Manhattan skyline we know and love today. If you've ever stepped into Tiffany & Co. on Fifth Avenue, you've been in one of the Crosses' stately structures. This is a beautiful survey of the brothers' work.” —Traditional Home

“Before New York was a city of international billionaires hiding ill-gotten gains in spindly glass towers, it was the skyscraper capital of the world, a city striving to reach high and scratch an indelible image of its ambition, worldliness, and cultural solidity right onto the sky. In New York Transformed, Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker make tangible the energy and verve of the moment when the patrician architect-developers Cross & Cross helped create that magical, magnetic Metropolis. Imbued with a keen understanding of the links between feeling and building, identity and masonry, the wants of mere men and the needs of mankind, their latest book is as important as it is compelling.” —Michael Gross, author of 740 Park and House of Outrageous Fortune

“Pennoyer and Walker bring the versatile Cross Brothers to life and shine a spotlight on their many handsome—sometimes dramatic—New York buildings. Many may know them from the dazzling GE Building on Lexington Avenue. But I was surprised that so many of my other favorites, from City Bank Farmers Trust Company and 41 Broad in Lower Manhattan, to the Links Club and Tiffany's, were Cross and Cross designed. What a welcome addition to any architecture buff's library.” 
Peg Breen, President, The New York Landmarks Conservancy
“What a delightful surprise! A practicing architect who's not only interested in history but writes it. Architect Peter Pennoyer and historian Anne Walker's new book on Cross and Cross resuscitates an architectural firm that strode the fertile territory between the traditional and the modern, providing a valuable lesson for architects today.” 
Donald Albrecht, Curator of Architecture and Design, Museum of the City of New York

HASH(0x9534fc60) von 5 Sternen Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker Another masterpiece 19. März 2014
Von Paul T. Mcconnell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Peter Pennoyer (an exceptional architect) and Anne Walker have an amazing gift for choosing great architects from the American Golden age of design and then publish great books profiling the architects/firms. This book is a must have for anyone who collects architectural monographs and the firm of Cross & Cross deserves a publication of this caliber. As always, The Monacelli Press is to be credited for publishing books of this quality. I highly recommend this purchase.

HASH(0x953513d8) von 5 Sternen Beautifully documented with photographs 6. Dezember 2014
Von Michael K. Wilkie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
You find the subject matter of the book covering so many different facets of New York architecture; Cross & Cross was active in the making of office buildings, country houses, private clubs etc. Beautifully documented with photographs, sketches and floors plans. Compares favourably with architectural surveys of other firms I own.

Lots of text and many photos. I had no idea Peter Pennoyer put this book together. I have one of his other books and adore that one also.
There are many gorgeous photos in this book. Black and white and color. The architects Cross & Cross really had their hand all over the northeast. Besides buildings in NYC, they did, and show, beautiful country homes in NY, NJ & even Vermont. Ones that look like you'd see in an old movie, with many built-ins. They also built many commercial buildings, and I love the photos of the old bank. They use and show such elaborate details. Romanesque, Greek, art deco, bas relief, etc...This book is truly a work of art, just like the buildings Cross & Cross designed. I had no idea that the buildings I recognize were done by them. A keeper of a book!
