About this title

Synopsis:

""The array of buildings by Renzo Piano is staggering in scope and comprehensive in the diversity of scale, material, and form. He is truly an architect whose sensibilities represent the widest range of this and earlier centuries."" Such was the description of Renzo Piano given by the Pritzker Prize jury citation as they bestowed the prestigious award on him in 1998. ""One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again,"" Piano says. ""Like a movie director doing a love story, a Western, or a murder mystery, a new world confronts an architect with each project."" This stunning monograph, illustrated by photographs, sketches, and plans, covers Piano's career to date. Also included are sneak peeks at Piano's current projects, including the New York Times Tower, a 52-story skyscraper to be built in Times Square, and the 80-story London Bridge Tower, which is set to be Europe's tallest building.
