Overlook: Exploring the Internal Fringes of America with the Center for Land Use Interpretation
Matthew Coolidge, Sarah Simons
Metropolis Books, 2006 - Architecture - 264 pages
Through close encounters with hundreds of unsung landmarks from show caves and shoelace factories to open-pit mines and nuclear test sites the Center for Land Use Interpretation explores how Americas lands have been parcelled out, put to use and understood. This book takes readers on a tour through the strangely unfamiliar land that Americans live in, demonstrating that the country can be understood by examining the clues on display everywhere, often clearly visible but often ignored.
