Overview

In the second half of the twentieth century, American architects—including émigré architects working in America—created some of the most exciting and daring buildings ever seen. Today, at the dawn of the new millennium, new generations of architects are continuing to test the limits of the possible and the desirable. This is the first publication in many years to present a broad cross-section of emerging American architects. All American brings together twenty practices from every corner of the country, investigating the originality that is unique to the American culture and climate. From Greg Lynn's digital explorations to Rick Joy's rammed-earth houses, from Office dA's reinterpretation of vernacular styles to Diller + Scofidio's experimental structures and Wendell Burnette's reformulation of desert buildings: here is a rich degree of innovation, redefinition, and insight. After an introduction that traces the most recent developments in American architecture and identifies regional, theoretical, or political strands, the book focuses on each studio in depth, with an extensive profile and coverage of three to five (mainly built) projects. A reference section contains concise biographies of each architect as well as contact information and bibliographical details. The book has been designed by leading art director Rebeca Méndez, whose work has been the subject of several exhibitions. 389 illustrations and photographs, 283 in color.

Author Biography: Annette LeCuyer is Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan and the author of Radical Tectonics. Brian Carter, formerly of Ove Arup engineers in London, is Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Written by practicing architects who teach at the University of Michigan, this valuable book showcases about 20 younger arxchitectural firms in the United States that are doing path-breaking work. It is organized by region, with four or five firms highlighted in each. Each profile offers biographical summaries of the firm's architects and information on three or four commissions. Most of the architects featured here were born in the 1950s and 1960s, and their work revives a tradition of radical modernism fed by cubism and minimalism that has overturned the sentimental nostalgia of neoconservative postmodernism popular in the 1980s. This translates into a cacophony of sharp edges, mixed media, mixed uses, complex sections, layered surfaces, and innovative materials making up some of the most striking, original, and attractive buildings of the last ten years. This book will serve as a quick look-up that will be useful to designers, architects, clients, artists, and historians. A few of the images are a bit grainy, as if they were reproduced from the Internet, but the illustrations are copious there are 400 altogether and most are in color. Highly recommended for design collections at all levels. Peter S. Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
