Overview

Robert A. M. Stern: Buildings is the first monograph to focus solely on more than fifteen years of the firm's nonresidential work. Divided thematically, it contains over thirty projects, each thoroughly documented with extensive photography and drawings. The introduction to the book, as well as those to each section, is an unusually personal essay, discussing Stern's education in the era of functionalist Modernism, his efforts to further and even to reestablish traditions, and the social, cultural, and symbolic obligations that must inform all successful buildings. Highlights include the just-completed Colgate Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia and the William H. Gates Computer Science Building at Stanford University, as well as a series of commissions for the Walt Disney Company. Other notable works are the Ohrstrom Library at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire; the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts; and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, New York.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"I want my buildings to be portraits of the places where they are built," proclaims eminent postmodernist architect Stern, and this snazzy showcase of 32 of his firm's major projects reveals his acute sensitivity to place, context and tradition, whether in the Georgian-inspired detailing of a red brick, granite and limestone Boston skyscraper, in Tokyo's imperially sedate Bancho House office tower or in the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass., this last an iconic representation of small-town New England public life. Along with lavish color photography, plans, drawings and a discussion of each building, Stern provides an unusually personal introductory essay, setting forth his architectural philosophy and recounting his rebellion as a young architect against sterile functionalism. Among the diverse buildings highlighted are the dignified Brooklyn Law School, Disney resort hotels in Florida and France, a Wheaton, Ill., shopping center designed like a Prairie School-style town square and two just-completed projects: Stanford University's computer science building, which reinvents Spanish Colonial, and the University of Virginia's acropolis-like business school.
