About this title

Synopsis:

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.
