Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Renzo Piano came to international prominence as the architect, with Richard Rogers, of the Pompidou Centre in Paris. The work of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop is characterized by its sensitivity to genius loci and local tradition as well as by its mix of traditional materials and techniques with those from the leading edge of technology. In this and succeeding volumes, the architecture of the Workshop is presented comprehensively, with many new photographs and drawings. This first volume also shows key works from Piano's earlier practices and explains how current work evolved from them. Also described are the early formative influences on Piano. 10x11.75". Distributed in the US by Chronicle Books. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
