This comprehensive volume of critical essays, testimonials, creative work, and archival photography follows the successful exhibition on El Helicoide that was held at the Center for Architecture during the summer of 2017. A scholarly reference and an engaging tale of mid-20th-century petro-modernity, Downward Spiral establishes the contrast between the architects’ grand plans for a futuristic, drive-in shopping mall and the building’s ultimate use as a homeless shelter and, to this day, a prison.
