Description
In this beautifully illustrated monograph, visionary "green" architect Travis Price briefly deconstructs what's wrong with modern architecture, then crafts an exciting, achievable ideal for the future. Here are studies ranging from Price's work for his own Washington, D.C.–based firm (including the library at St. John's College in Annapolis and Wade Davis's overhead bookshelf rotunda), to a massive highway interchange in Beijing and a meditation platform in the treetops in Nepal. Drawing on influences from Angkor Wat to Andy Goldsworthy, Buddha to Frank Gehry, without losing sight of the sacred and the natural, Price shows how the modern world can embrace and celebrate global change without losing what makes us what we are.
