Portuguese translation of the polemic and premonitory book "Delirious New York" (1978) by Dutch architect and urbanist Rem Koolhaas with introductory essay by Adrián Gorelik. This critical text is a combination of manifesto/history on the contradictions of two contemporary disciplines (architecture and urban design) and their struggle to maintain the humanist ideals in the formation of cities, particularly the city of New York, the constructions of its iconic landmarks such as Central Park, Empire State building and the visits and interventions of personages like LeCorbuser, Diego Rivera and Salvador Dalí
