Synopsis: Ben Nicholson's work reflects the concerns of a generation educated and influenced by Daniel Libeskind and John Hejduk but establishes a highly individual search for rigor, precision, and craftsmanship in architecture. Here he analyzes the structure and form of everyday objects such as appliances and bread tags to construct the theoretical and physical framework for an Appliance House, a shelter from Sub-Urban life, a receptacle for all the forgotten objects of society. This book brings together numerous sketches, pencil drawings, color collages, and models that provide a detailed account of this unique four­year project.

Ben Nicholson completed Appliance House as a Fellow of the Chicago Institute for Architecture and Urbanism.

About the Author: Ben Nicholson is Studio Professor of Architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology and author of The Appliance House.
