New from Rockport Publishers, the volumes in the "Single Building" series are destined to be highly collectible books. Each focuses on a single important contemporary Building, selected for its unique character, innovative design, or technical genius. Building of varying types and sizes are included, from small residences to expansive museums, with the evolution of the design and construction process thoroughly documented from initial concept to finished building. Photographs, sketches, drawings, and details are supplemented in each book with an essay by the architect on the design process, and an essay by an architectural critic on the project's significance. Fold-out flaps on the front and back covers include reference site and floor plans, with the vantage point of every photograph in the book indicated. Unfolded, these convenient plans provide instant orientation for each image, eliminating the need to flip pages back and forth between plans and photographs.
