[An] insightful primer on contemporary architecture"(ARTnews), by the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic. Featured in the New York Times and Preservation, The Unreal America is the former New York Times architecture critic's highly praised examination of Americans' preference for invented environments--theme parks, shopping malls, historic restorations. These and other unreal places including Disney's Celebration City, have created a fantasy world where the authentic is neither admired nor desired. Real art, real places, and history, Huxtable provocatively argues, are the losers in the unreal America.
