New York: Oxford University Press, 1978. First Edition. Quarto. Koolhaas's immensely influential "retroactive manifesto" for Manhattan architecture. The dust jacket image is a painting by Madelon Vriesendorp, Koolhaas's wife. In it the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, their forms softened like a pair of Dalí watches, lie together in bed in apparent post-coital exhaustion while Rockerfeller Center, playing the jealous husband in this surreal architectural drama, emerges from a doorway at stage left and shines his spotlight onto the guilty pair. Near fine in a near fine jacket with a short edge tear and a few tiny nicks. Pleasing copy.
