An account of the life and work of the architect Minoru Yamasaki that leads the author to consider how (and for whom) architectural history is written.

Sandfuture is a book about the life of the architect Minoru Yamasaki (1912–1986), who remains on the margins of history despite the enormous influence of his work on American architecture and society. That Yamasaki's most famous projects—the Pruitt-Igoe apartments in St. Louis and the original World Trade Center in New York—were both destroyed on national television, thirty years apart, makes his relative obscurity all the more remarkable.

Sandfuture is also a book about an artist interrogating art and architecture's role in culture as New York changes drastically after a decade bracketed by terrorism and natural disaster. From the central thread of Yamasaki's life, Sandfuture spirals outward to include reflections on a wide range of subjects, from the figure of the architect in literature and film and transformations in the contemporary art market to the perils of sick buildings and the broader social and political implications of how, and for whom, cities are built. The result is at once sophisticated in its understanding of material culture and novelistic in its telling of a good story.

Indirect and Direct Signature requirements

Signature requirements apply to domestic US shipments ONLY

Orders $70 to $299.99 require an indirect signature.

This means that if the first delivery attempt is unsuccessful a note will be left at the address given under "Ship To". This note has the option for the customer to sign and the package will be left where specified by customer on the next delivery attempt.

Orders $300 and more require a direct signature.

A direct signature is obtained when the package is delivered to the shipping address and a signature is given to the delivery person. The signature cannot be left on a note, delivery notice, or any other method. It must be in person.

If after the third delivery attempt the necessary signature type has not been obtained, the package will be returned to Destination PSP. In the event a package is returned due to lack of signature, the purchase amount will be refunded, minus the cost for shipping even if order was eligible for free shipping. The shipping cost includes from Destination PSP to the shipping address and from the shipping address back to Destination PSP.

Example:
Order subtotal = $100
Shipping cost = $10 one way (so x 2 for shipping TO you and BACK to us)
Total refund = $80
