Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The work of James Cutler and Bruce Anderson of Cutler Anderson Architects reveals a unique approach to sustainable architecture: encouraging environmental stewardship through design that heightens the experience of the natural world. Each project begins with a careful investigation of site and material and culminates in a well-crafted building that fits seamlessly into the landscape. This monograph examines Cutler Andersons practice as it expands beyond their widely admired houses to include public buildings. Among the thirty award-winning projects featured are innovative structures—residential as well as institutional—that show the firms refinement of structural expressiveness, articulated details, and multilayered transitions. Stunning photographs are supplemented by complete project documentation, including sketches, diagrams, presentation drawings, working drawings, and models.
