  • July 29 New York Skyscrapers and the Terra Cotta Revolution | See how this revolutionary lightweight and highly malleable material came to define the New York City skyline (and kept it from burning down) across the five boroughs and the eminent 20th-century architects who chose to get creative with clay.
