The Unreal America
Ada Louise Huxtable
[An] insightful primer on contemporary architecture"(ARTnews), by the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic. Featured in the New York Times and Preservation, The Unreal America is the former New York Times architecture critic's highly praised examination of Americans' preference for invented environments—theme parks, shopping malls, historic restorations. These and other unreal places including Disney's Celebration City, have created a fantasy world where the authentic is neither admired nor desired. Real art, real places, and history, Huxtable provocatively argues, are the losers in the unreal America.
