For the first time, and in a beautifully designed volume, the collected workprojects, drawings, essays, and poemsof one of America's foremost architects, architectural thinkers, and educators is brought together. Hejduk, an intellectual descendant of the heroic period of modern architecture, has consistently used and maneuvered the modernist vocabulary, forcing it, in the design process, to reflect his personal poetic vision. Sections, plans, and axonometrics are complemented with rough or thumbnail sketches showing their germination. These beautiful drawings take on a narrative strength when grouped together and serve to illuminate Hejduk's architectonic thoughts. Also integrated within the book are his site-specific sculptures, like the Berlin Masque, and watercolors from the Italian Sketches. Highly recommended. Den nis L. Dollens, "SITES," New York
