These new titles in the Building Blocks series showcase four more icons of modern architecture, as portrayed by renowned architectural photographer Ezra Stoller. Two buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater and Taliesin West, Louis Kahn's Salk Institute, and Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building are shown in original condition, with original furnishings, as the architects intended them to be seen. Wright's integration of architecture and landscape, Kahn's dramatic yet humane monumentality, and Mies's austere elegance are revealed and preserved in Stoller's classic compositions. Small, elegant, and affordable, each volume presents the photo-graphs that made these structures famous. With 60 rich duotone plates (and 16 color plates for Taliesin West), a brief introduction, and newly drawn plans, sections, and elevations, these books constitute the essential photographic histories of the most important works of modernism.

About the Author:

Ezra Stoller is one of the preeminent architectural photographers in the world and the founder of the renowned Esto architectural photography studio.

Review:

"Ezra Stoller is the Annie Leibovitz of modern architecture." -- House & Garden

"The books are pocket-sized but Stoller's images, well-reproduced, are still effective in this small format. Not just his eye and technique impress but also his tolerance and apt inclusion of people." -- Architects Journal

"These books are telling, not only about their subjects (shown in lush duotones), but also about how modern architecture came to be perceived by historians, architects, and the public." -- Cathy Lang Ho, Architecture

Architectural photographer Ezra Stoller's stunning oeuvre forms the basis for Princeton Architectural Press's "Building Block" series of books saluting landmarks of 20th-century architecture. The first titles: The TWA Terminal, The Chapel at Ronchamp, The United Nations, and The Yale Art and Architecture Building. -- Elle Décor

Each compact volume in this impeccably curated series is devoted to a single, seminal work by a modern master. -- House Beautiful, July 2000

Handsome and well-priced; based on the brilliant photography of Ezra Stoller. -- Interior Design, June 2000
