Matteo Pericoli is an Italian-born architect and illustrator whose family is from the Marches region in central Italy. In 1995, after graduating from the Polytechnic School of Milan, he moved to New York City. His work has been published by Rizzoli, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Harper 's, and the Italian national newspaper La Stampa, to which he is a regular contributor. He began working on Manhattan unfurled in 1998 after taking a Circle Line boat tour around the island of Manhattan, which enabled him to see the city in its entirety—and all of its diversity—for the first time. Two and a half years and 890 inches later, the two drawings of the West Side and East Side were completed. He and his wife live on Manhattan's West Side, not far from the Hudson River.
Paul Goldberger is the architecture critic for The New Yorker, where he first wrote about Matteo Pericoli's drawing in 1999. He joined the magazine in 1997, following a twenty-five-year career at The New York Times, where he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1984 for his architecture criticism. Born in New Jersey, he graduated from Yale University and since then has lived in New York City, which is the subject of two of his five books (The City Observed and Above New York). His writing has received numerous awards in addition to the Pulitzer, and he appears frequently on television and in films to discuss art, architecture, and cities. He is now at work on a book about the experience of looking at architecture. He and his wife live with their three sons on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
