By inventing the elevator in 1854, Elias Otis set a landmark for the "new world" as we know it today. Skyscrapers kept rising to unexpected heights. Celebrating their anniversary, the leading global lift manufacturer Otis presented a fantastic world-wide exhibition of megacities featuring all its glories and down sides. We were lucky enough to indulge into Gruner & Jahr's enormous photo stock. The book was released in German & English.
