Overview

These new titles in the Building Blocks series showcase four more icons of modern architecture, as portrayed by renowned architectural photographer Ezra Stoller. Two buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater and Taliesin West, Louis Kahn's Salk Institute, and Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building are shown in original condition, with original furnishings, as the architects intended them to be seen. Wright's integration of architecture and landscape, Kahn's dramatic yet humane monumentality, and Mies's austere elegance are revealed and preserved in Stoller's classic compositions. Small, elegant, and affordable, each volume presents the photo-graphs that made these structures famous. With 60 rich duotone plates (and 16 color plates for Taliesin West), a brief introduction, and newly drawn plans, sections, and elevations, these books constitute the essential photographic histories of the most important works of modernism.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ezra Stoller is the Annie Leibovitz of modern architecture. House & Garden

This is one of a series of small photo books (5 1/2 x 7 1/2 ) presenting the masterworks of modern architecture through the lens of Ezra Stoller. For 60 years, Stoller has been revered by architects, editors, collectors, and photographers for his ability to translate an architect's vision into two dimensions. This is architectural photography at its finest. For anyone interested in photographing buildings, there is a wealth of information in Stoller's images, particularly his interiors. Each volume has an introduction by a prominent architectural writer, drawings and plans, a key to the photos, and a note form Stoller about how he came to photograph the building, as well as some of the difficulties he encountered. Popular Photography

Architects Journal
The books are pocket-sized but Stoller's images, well-reproduced, are still effective in this small format. Not just his eye and technique impress but also his tolerance and apt inclusion of people.
Elle Decor
Architectural photographer Ezra Stoller's stunning oeuvre forms the basis for Princeton Architectural Press's "Building Block" series of books saluting landmarks of 20th-century architecture. The first titles: The TWA Terminal, The Chapel at Ronchamp, The United Nations, and The Yale Art and Architecture Building.

Cathy Lang Ho
These books are telling, not only about their subjects (shown in lush duotones), but also about how modern architecture came to be perceived by historians, architects, and the public.
