Light may be both wave and particle, but rarely is it considered a building material, for it is the essence of insubstantiality, too inconstant to be relied upon, a desirable after-thought in much 20th and 21st century architecture. For architect Thomas L. Bosworth, however, it is the primum mobile, and his extraordinary understanding of light as a living thing informs his vision and his work. In a career that began in 1960 in the office of Eero Saarinen and continues with new projects on the boards today, he consistently uses natural light to inform his architecture, to bring to it both shape and meaning. This book is a review of some of some of Bosworth's most exceptional houses.

From the Publisher:

It is a splendid book, very elegantly designed and printed with lovely photographs, good plans and clear diagrams. That alone makes the book worth having. But, I was most impressed with the quality of work... it is truly impressive. --Cesar Pelli, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects

Review:

This sumptuous book contains a selection of 15 recent houses by Seattle's own Thomas Bosworth...it stands as possibly the lovliest object of this year's architectural catalogues. --Arcade Magazine
