In American City X, editor Mark Robbins, former
dean of Syracuse University’s School of Architecture,
argues that innovative and compelling architecture
can not only enhance the way a city is perceived,
but also change the way it works. Looking to
Syracuse, NY, as the archetypal “American City X,”
the book showcases projects that demonstrate potential
positive futures for post industrial cities across
the country. Featuring renovations and ground-up
constructions—ranging from landscapes to buildings
and infrastructure—at both residential and institutional
scales, the successful recent work in Syracuse
addresses sustainability, material and formal
experimentation, and inventive use of space for
evolving community needs.
