Architects help design our future, but an extraordinary interpretive talent is often needed to bring their work into a tangible, real-world context prior to the construction of the projects. Drawing The Future, a celebration of architectural perspectivist Paul Stevenson Oles's intricate wax-pencil renderings, is both a revealing study of such an interpretive talent and a timely overview of the first decade of postmodern architecture. - In 100 illustrations Oles captures nuance and detail every bit as faithfully as the photographer's lens, but also reveal a unique ability to capture the feel of these buildings in their respective environments. - These illustrations, many appearing for the first time, are the result of sixty-one major projects undertaken from 1976 through 1986. Many of the projects are represented by more than one view, including multiple view and day/nigh comparisons. The works are divided into six chapters based on project location, with Oles's accompanying commentary describing the challenges and opportunities presented by each project as well as his evaluative thoughts at their completion. -- Projects include those by many well known architects, and include: MIT Arts and Media Technology Building - New York Public Library Rehabilitation - Jacob K. Javits Convention Center - U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum - Dallas Symphony Hall - Johnson & Johnson Headquarters - Duke University Law School - Grand Louvre Facilities Expansion ( the I. M. Pei project), and many others
