This comprehensive, lavishly illustrated survey of the most recent work of Robert A. M. Stern Architects, arguably the most versatile of the "starchitects," is an essential reference for architecture offices and libraries and an exceptionally handsome volume that will appeal to architecture afficionados.
Architect and architectural historian Robert A. M. Stern has garnered prestigious commissions across America and throughout the world, including, most recently, the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, residential towers in Manhattan, Washington, and Hangzhou, China, and major campus projects for the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and Tsinghua University in Beijing. Deeply committed to the principle of building in context, Stern has no signature style. Instead his work speaks to the urban fabric that surrounds it, yielding a portfolio that is at once historically sensitive and responsive to contemporary life.
