Overview


Thirty-three of the world’s most accomplished and inspiring architects—Gehry, Pei, Meier, Nouvel, Piano, and 28 more—express their views on creativity, inspiration, and legacy in this visually stunning, one-of-a-kind collection

The Pritzker Prize is the most prestigious international prize for architecture. Architect presents all 33 recipients of the Pritzker Prize, and captures in pictures and in their own words the awe-inspiring achievements of each architect. Organized by architect, each chapter features approximately four to six major works that represent a range of skills, materials, and methods, as well as a variety of structures including museums, libraries, transportation hubs, hotels, places of worship, and more. The text, culled from diaries, interviews, articles, speeches, and notebooks, and provided by each architect, illuminates his works and enlightens on topics such as his influences and inspirations, personal philosophy, and aspirations for his own work and the future of architecture.  The book includes 700 stunning and fascinating photographs, blueprints, sketches, and CAD drawings representing each architect's major works.

Architect is a unique work that offers an unprecedented view into the minds of some of the most creative thinkers, dreamers, and builders of the last three decades.
