The Work of Robert A.M. Stern Architects
Robert A.M. Stern; edited by Shannon Hohlbein and Peter Morris Dixon
Open Studio offers a window into the methods and unique culture of an architecture firm that has achieved international success.
Curated illustrations of hand sketches, study models, design sessions, and site visits pull back the curtain on the creative collaboration behind the scenes at Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Nearly 100 pages of photographs of finished work, including academic buildings, museums, houses, apartment houses, and office towers, demonstrate the firm’s ability to realize modern buildings in a wide variety of stylistic vocabularies through a commitment to fundamental principles of architecture and a respect for context and history.
Founded in 1969, the 250-person New York-based Robert A.M. Stern Architects has received numerous awards for design excellence from the American Institute of Architects, the Congress for the New Urbanism, the Urban Land Institute, the Society for College and University Planning, and the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art.
Praise for Open Studio
"Stern and his team have transcended his postmodernist origins to arrive at a style both original and entirely in keeping with existing environments. Open Studio is a celebration of decades of the firm’s designs, and the photograph-heavy book is sure to delight."
