$75.00 – Hardback / Monacelli Press / United States
Now more than ever, architects and designers are crossing
aesthetic borders, and redefining craft to suit their own creative
needs, philosophies, and expectations-often by commenting upon or
challenging it. By transforming our notions of what might be
considered “crafted,” today’s practitioners have not only put a new
spin on an ancient art; they have expanded our understanding of
where and how the personal touch is found in the sometimes
bewildering or inhospitable terrain of the contemporary aesthetic
Featuring twenty-five residential, commercial, and institutional projects-by major international design figures as well as the relatively unknown and up-and-coming-this volume looks at what constitutes the craft influence in contemporary architecture and design. By turns luxurious and simp≤ time-honored and leading-ed≥ small-scale and monumental; unabashedly beautiful, surprisingly witty, socially adroit, and sublimely poetic, these projects are sure to give us a new appreciation of the pleasures of making-and enlarge and enrich our understanding of the presence, and importance, of craft in all our lives.
