Benjamin Baldwin: An Autobiography in Design provides a comprehensive survey of the work of the man whom architect Louis Kahn called "the dean of American interior designers." Trained as an architect at Princeton, Baldwin also studied with Hans Hofmann and with Eliel Saarinen at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. After a brief partnership with architect Harry Weese in Chicago, he worked in the New York office of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, before launching an independent practice. His career spanned a period of over fifty years, from 1940 to 1991. In 1985 he was designated a charter member of Interior Design magazine's Hall of Fame.
Extensively illustrated, the text explores the early influences on Baldwin's development and illustrates his design principles by focusing first on the houses and apartments he designed for himself and then on his work for clients, both residential and non-residential. A final chapter is devoted to the aspect of his work that he felt represented the ultimate form of creativity - garden design.

Book Description W W Norton & Co Inc, Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., 1995. Cloth Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Baldwin said that his concept of the house in the future would be "one which would hardly be seen. It would provide, in as transparent a way as possible, protection against the elemtns . . It would be an NEW BOOK and DJ. Baldwin pushed the envelope of space in a beautiful garden. Inside would be a tranquil, quiet place fromj which to look at the outside." With an introduction to his work like that, it is enticing to grab this book and peruse the daylights out of it, and enjoy it. It is a lovely book, greatly illustrated, and we think you will enjoy and be inspired by it. A great gift. Seller Inventory # 002057
