Purpose of this interim website

This is an interim website in preparation for an upcoming book, Werner Seligmann Architecture + Urbanism, by Syracuse University professor emeritus Bruce M Coleman—for him, "it's a labor of love."

In identifying potential drawings and photos for the book, Bruce had found mostly sub-standard images, especially since most projects predate the digital era, and some images date back to the mid-50s.

This website presents 42 projects likely to be included in the upcoming book and those images being considered, all of which have been enhanced as much as possible to make them comprehensible to the 21st century architecture enthusiast.

• Flip books: simulate the feel of actually reading the book—recommended—two options to the right...
