Frank-WilliamsLast February, the architecture community lost a prominent figure with the passing away of Frank Williams. For over forty years, Mr. Williams designed dozens of skyscrapers that impact the skylines of many cities like New York, Dubai, and Shanghai.

After graduating from the University of California at Berkeley and receiving a master’s degree from Harvard, Frank Williams taught at Columbia University for four years before opening his own office, Frank Williams & Partners in New York. Since then, the firm has received many honors, including those from the Municipal Art Society of New York and the American Institute of Architecture. Mr. Williams died on February 25th, 2010, he was 73.

A new book about the late Frank Williams has just been released in September. The book, with a strikingly elongated format, starts with an introduction by the architect, then features 35 skyscrapers designed by Mr. Williams, including renderings and photographs. While going through these mega-buildings, one can notice the architect's attention to details, as well his constant effort in bringing those huge volumes to the human scale.


Skyscrapers, assume a role that goes far beyond its functional requirements. They are are symbolic landmarks that define a city's skyline. Their stylistic form-givers vary from cultural background of the host city to the technological criteria that allow those building to go ever so higher.
