Gordon Bunshaft and SOM: Building Corporate Modernism
A nuanced portrait of the 20th-century architect whose work defined the built aesthetic of corporate America Gordon Bunshaft’s (1909–1990) landmark 1952 design for Lever House reshaped the Manhattan skyline and elevated the reputation of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), the firm where he would spend more than 40 years as a partner. Although this enigmatic architect left behind few records, his legacy endures in the corporate headquarters, museums, and libraries that were built in his distinctive modernist style. Bunshaft’s career was marked by shifts in material. Glass and steel structures of the 1950s, such as New York’s Chase Manhattan Bank, gave way to revolutionary designs in concrete, such as the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University and the doughnut-shaped Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC. Bunshaft’s collaborations with artists, including Isamu Noguchi, Jean Dubuffet, and Henry Moore, were of paramount importance throughout his career. Nicholas Adams explores the contested line between Bunshaft’s ambition for acclaim as a singular artistic genius and the collaborative structure of SOM’s architectural partnership. Bunshaft received the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1988 and remains the only SOM partner to have achieved this distinction. Adams counters Bunshaft’s maxim that “the building speaks for itself” with necessary critical context about this modernist moment at a time when the future of Bunshaft’s iconic works is very much in question.
Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (Architectural History Foundation Book)
During the years when modernism triumphed in American architecture, few architects worked more actively to promulgate that vision than Gordon Bunshaft, and none was more adept at translating the ideal images of Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier into buildable, corporate realities. Standards of design and practice established by Bunshaft in conjunction with his firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill came to be the measure by which much American work was judged, and the look of American cities changed accordingly. Carol Herselle Krinsky's analysis of Bunshaft's work is the first complete study of this important and at times difficult architect. Her analysis benefits not only from newly available source material but also from extensive interviews with Bunshaft himself. What emerges is an extraordinary portrait of one of the major architects of the twentieth century as seen through his buildings and the efforts to bring those buildings into being. The book also takes into account Bunshaft's clients who were often major figures in the worlds of business and politics. Krinsky discusses such icons of modern architecture as Lever House and the Manufacturers Hanover Trust, as well as such influential but less well known buildings as the Istanbul Hilton, the Hag Terminal and National Commercial Bank in Saudi Arabia, the Banque Lambert in Brussels, and the Pepsi Cola Company Headquarters in New York City. She relates Bunshaft's pioneering technological innovations to the buildings they enhanced and clarifies the collaborative workings of his phenomenally successful firm. Carol Herselle Krinsky is Professor of Fine Arts at New York University and a past president of the Society of Architectural Historians. She is the author of Synagogues of Europe: Architecture, History, Meaning and Rockefeller Center. This book is included in The Architectural History Foundation American Monograph Series.
Headquarters Economy: Managers, Mobility, and Migration
Metropolitan areas with a high concentration of headquarters from diverse industries stand out as influential, dynamic economies. However, there is little discussion about the characteristics of these 'headquarters economies'. Why do some regions develop vibrant headquarters economies, whereas others do not? The answer lies in understanding the essence of headquarters - the managerial talent pool that guides and governs these companies. By investigating an exemplar headquarters economy - Minneapolis-St. Paul - this volume demonstrates that the talent pool (managers), its movement among companies and industries in a region (mobility), and the nature of its inflow and outflow from a region (migration), can create a virtuous cycle that strengthens regional companies, and draws in additional talent. Comparing the migration pattern of educated, high-earning individuals across metropolitan areas in the United States, and drawing upon a proprietary survey of thousands of headquarters employees in Minneapolis-St. Paul, this book provides supportive evidence for this dynamic.A central insight of the research is that professional managerial talent is a determinant of regional vitality that has largely been overlooked. The underlying factors of managers, mobility, and migration, here identified in the context of Minneapolis-St. Paul, exist in metropolitan areas around the world, demonstrating the scope of application of the research findings, and highlighting the benefit of focusing on these underlying factors.

Pastoral Capitalism: A History of Suburban Corporate Landscapes (Urban and Industrial Environments)
How business appropriated the pastoral landscape, as seen in the corporate campus, the corporate estate, and the office park.By the end of the twentieth century, America's suburbs contained more office space than its central cities. Many of these corporate workplaces were surrounded, somewhat incongruously, by verdant vistas of broad lawns and leafy trees. In Pastoral Capitalism, Louise Mozingo describes the evolution of these central (but often ignored) features of postwar urbanism in the context of the modern capitalist enterprise. These new suburban corporate landscapes emerged from a historical moment when corporations reconceived their management structures, the city decentralized and dispersed into low-density, auto-dependent peripheries, and the pastoral―in the form of leafy residential suburbs―triumphed as an American ideal. Greenness, writes Mozingo, was associated with goodness, and pastoral capitalism appropriated the suburb's aesthetics and moral code. Like the lawn-proud suburban homeowner, corporations understood a pastoral landscape's capacity to communicate identity, status, and right-mindedness. Mozingo distinguishes among three forms of corporate landscapes―the corporate campus, the corporate estate, and the office park―and examines suburban corporate landscapes built and inhabited by such companies as Bell Labs, General Motors, Deere & Company, and Microsoft. She also considers the globalization of pastoral capitalism in Europe and the developing world including Singapore, India, and China. Mozingo argues that, even as it is proliferating, pastoral capitalism needs redesign, as do many of our metropolitan forms, for pressing social, cultural, political, and environmental reasons. Future transformations are impossible, however, unless we understand the past. Pastoral Capitalism offers an indispensible chapter in urban history, examining not only the design of corporate landscapes but also the economic, social, and cultural models that deter...
