By David Gissen
Manhattan Atmospheres uncovers an alternative environmental history of New York, examining the megastructural apartments, verdant corporate atria, enormous trading rooms, and mammoth museum galleries built between the 1960s and early 1980s. David Gissen demonstrates how these sealed environments were not closed off conceptually from the surrounding city but key sites of environmental production and a new type of socionatural form.
