Description

This book features 17 architects with significant work in the good ol' US of A from the firmly established to the up-and-coming with the focus on how they have contributed to very recent architecture. Entries include contact information and short biographies in addition to copiously illustrated descriptions of the architects' or firms' most significant recent projects.

A total of 25 projects are given the case study treatment, including the likes of Asymptote,Frank O. Gehry and Morphosis. Buildings featured include Richard Meier's sweeping, cacophonous San Jose City Hall, Morphosis' stark and wistful NOAA Satellite Operational Control Facility, dominated by the questing dishes, and Michael Jantzen's unbuilt Concept Winery, an agglomeration of green curves "based on [Jantzen's] vision of a symbolic abstraction of a giant grape vine." There are photos, plans and text in English, French and German.
