Summary:
"New York-based architect Peter Eisenman is one of the most significant international figures of the postwar period. Through his extensive theoretical writings and built projects in the United States, Japan, Spain, and Germany, he has influenced generations of architects and educators and paved the way for the current digital avant-garde." "This is the first single-volume, comprehensive overview ever published of Eisenman's buildings and projects, from his first work, House I (1967), in New Jersey, to his most recent large-scale works around the world. His most ambitious and complex project is currently under construction in Spain; his Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin, which opened in 2005, has attracted worldwide attention and acclaim." "At the book's core is a complete presentation if Eisenman's most important projects, delineated by the academic and building themes he has pursued throughout his career, and framed by essays from international architects and critics such as Stan Allen, Greg Lynn, Sara Whiting, and Guido Zuliani."--Jacket.
