About this Item: Houston, Texas : Architecture at Rice Publications, 1996. Condition: Sehr gut. Unpag. Umschlag leicht berieben, sonst gutes Exemplar. - Across a career that now spans twenty years of building, the architect Stanley Saitowitz has consistently portrayed his architecture as derived from and rooted in its site; indeed a Saitowitz building might be said to be made of its site. As an architect whose work concerns itself with "nature's mode of operation," the geometry of Saitowitz's buildings were, and often still are, engraved in the topography of the earth. From its origins on the South African Transvaal in the late 1970s, Saitowitz's practice moved to the lush hills of northern California, and increasingly his work situates itself in the city and the megalopolis. In San Francisco and the Bay Area, in Boston, Columbus, New York, and Berlin, as well as the non-site suburbs of much of modern California, the intricacy of that which is cohered by Saitowitz's geometries has exponentially increased. The ground upon which Saitowitz works, the natural mode of operation to which his work must refer is now a topography of rarefied economic and legal dimension. While his architectural practice is relatively young, it is a practice that, upon this metropolitan ground, has entered its third phase: Saitowitz is now building works that describe not only a ground but indeed a wide-open landscape within what Felix Guattari has referred to as "the age of capitalist abstraction," an urban plateau characterized by a "deterritorialization of knowledge and technique."' The publication of the present monograph marks the beginning of that phase; 1022 Natoma Street, the McLane-Looke Residence, and the Bischoff House, like Le Corbusier's Maison LaRoche, preview a public and private body of work to come-some of which is now under constructic that offers insights not only into Saitowitz's oeuvre but, bee: of its diligence and clarity, to a generation of American archit who struggle to maintain the territorial margins of what is a the discipline of architecture.
