From the Author
I'm obsessed with architecture. Like most obsessions, mine is driven by passion: the love and awe I've always felt for great buildings, old and new and anywhere in between. I'm also driven by the pleasure I have in designing them, in being immersed in the creative process and emerging in the end with a work that serves the greater good.
From the Inside Flap
San Fransisco-based architect Anne Fougeron, principal of award-winning Fougeron Architecture, embraces architectural opportunities found in opposition, creating buildings that redefine program, reinvent historical building types, and reinvigorate civic centers. Each project is a careful consideration of context, light, and structure.
Believing that thoughtful architecture should be accessible to all, the firm takes on fewer projects in order to develop meaningful relationships with clients and ensure Fougeron's personal involvement in every project rom start to finish. She not only designs for residential and commercial clients but is unwavering in her commitment to serving often-overlooked nonprofit organizations. She continues to work with organizations such as Planned Parenthood, Mercy Housing, and the San Francisco Public Library. Fougeron Architecture: Opposition/ Composition
is the first monograph on this heralded firm. Introduced by Hitoshi Abe, the book features fourteen projects that display the breadth of their work.
