Overview

"Thom Mayne, the founder and principal of the Los Angeles-based firm Morphosis, is one of the most influential architects of his generation practicing today. After completing several residential projects and renovations in the late 1970s Morphosis first gained widespread recognition in the architecture world in the early 1980s with the design of high-profile restaurants in the Los Angeles area. The firm's non-Cartesian forms, beautifully executed sculptural models, and complex computer-generated drawings helped to usher in a new era of architectural experimentation and have made Mayne a highly sought-after teacher and lecturer." This book publishes for the first time all of Morphosis's completed work showcasing 35 buildings and installations in bold documentary-style color photographs with selected plans and drawings. The work ranges from the firm's early residential and restaurant projects in Los Angeles to its most recent work beyond California and the United States in Canada, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and Austria.
