About this Item

Number line complete, 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Minor wrinkling to fabric covering bottom of rear board, as made. A stylish "architectural biography" of the Argentine-turned-New York architect, including a composite interview but primarily consisting of photographs of the architect's work, some color but mostly B&W, in approximately chronological order. This was the personal copy of Las Vegas casino legend Bob Stupak, who built the Stratosphere Tower, and was obtained from his estate April 2011, though it bears no mark of ownership. A NOTE TO OUR OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: While we welcome offshore orders, heavy books present a special problem. We ship our books in boxes, and all international boxes of more than 4 lbs. must now travel by air, "Priority Mail." This book is thus likely to cost something on the order of $55 to $70 to ship overseas. While we rebate overage above actual shipping costs, overseas buyers should not order this book or other heavy books unless they're willing to approve and pay the requisite "Priority" shipping. This copy reduced from $52. Bookseller Inventory # 001711

About this title


Rafael Vi oly is arguably our most consummate practitioner of architecture; Herbert Muschamp of the New York Times calls him "the most elegant architect now practicing in the United States," one whose powerful buildings "quicken your awareness of the present and its untapped possibilities."

In a breathtaking list of major commissions, Vi oly has taken projects of an often conventional nature-conference centers, recital halls, exhibition halls, sports facilities-and transformed them into unconvential works of beauty, notable for their lucidity, and often breathtaking technical prowess.

This encyclopedic monograph, designed by Lars M ller in the same spirit as his Peter Zumthor: Works, is the first on Vi oly, and includes projects in the United States, Argentina, Egypt, Korea, and Japan. Featured are the recently opened Kimmel Performing Arts Center-the new home of the Philaldelphia Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Convention Center, the Climate Prediction Center on the Palisades, the Princeton University Stadium, and the dazzling Tokyo Forum-the gracefully expressive building Muschamp describes as "an absolutist building, perfectly realized."

An essay by Joan Ockman, Director of the Buell Center of American Architecture at Columbia University, introduces Vi oly's work, which is copiously documented in more than 500 color images and drawings.
