The Kirklin Clinic, in Birmingham, Alabama, is the first freestanding medical building designed by one of America's most significant modern architects, I.M. Pei. The text, written by architectural critic and historian Aaron Betsky, is based on interviews with the architect and the surgeon whose vision it was to create this world-class clinic. The story of the evolution of the clinic is illustrated by many striking photographs by well-known Los Angeles architectural photographer Tom Bonner. Co-published with the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
