The work of Minoru Yamasaki

This page is longer than usual because I work in a building designed by this architect, and so have a special interest - GH.

Short biography:

1912-1986, American architect, born in Seattle, WA. He is known for his designs combining aesthetic appeal with functional efficiency, and he preferred delicate, refined material such as wood and polished steel to the more conventional rough concrete and brick. His designs are seen in airport buildings in St. Louis (1951) and Boston (1968); at the U.S. Consulate General, Kobe, Japan; at the U.S. science pavilion for the Seattle World Exposition (1962); and at the World Trade Center complex, N.Y.C.

World Trade Center, New York, NY, USA.
