Grain Elevators
by Lisa Mahar-Keplinger
Publisher's Description
"In this beautifully illustrated book, urban and rural grain elevators are analyzed with respect to such traditional elements of architecture as proportion, geometry, and materials. The changes in the perceptions of elevators over the past hundred years, as well as their transformation of the urban and rural landscape, are examined in a variety of media, ranging from the architecture of Le Corbusier to the photographs of Bernd and Hilla Becher. The grain elevator is shown as the representation of the physical and spiritual aspirations of American design and culture."--the publisher.
