Sinopsis:

"The greatest influences of German architecture on America are bipolar: Folk Architecture and Modern Academic Architecture. In between are the lower keyed stories of less dramatic contributions." From log houses, corner beer halls and restaurants, and modern theme parks to the Brooklyn bridge and the Seagram Building in New York, German-inspired architecture covers America and defines a cultural heritage. In this book, a fascinating text is peppered with over 300 historical and contemporary photographs that illustrate powerful as well as quaint German-style buildings throughout America. From the Hill Country of Texas to the skylines of the great American cities and famous bridges, everyday places and American icons alike are described in detail with charming anecdotes about people and uses that combine to create a culture that is all-American. This book features so many highly recognized places that you will wonder why the subject hasn't been presented before. It is fresh, stimulating, and entertaining; a delight to architects and all who have never before thought about the great legacy of German influence in America.
