Editorial Reviews


"Stern ably tells his stories, as do the spectacular photographs and drawings in this weighty tome. Unlike many neo-conservatives who genuflect at a monolithic altar of the past, Stern has a playfully pluralistic relationship to architectural history and contemporary design. And unlike the hippest of the hip, he has no need to dadaistically defy or defame the architectural canon . . . For that and more, this book warrants our appreciative attention."
—Norman Weinstein, ArchNewsNow

Format: Hardcover
This monograph of Stern's recent work is incredible. The photography is stunning, and the book covers both built and unbuilt projects. Highlighting Stern's masterful interpretation of what he calls "modern classicism" as well as his numerous successes with Art Déco and other styles, this book is a must-have for any architectural enthusiast.

This is a beautifully done book, the photos just pop off the page and the buildings are just amazing. Mr. Stern is a master of many styles, but I must admit I think he is best when working in Georgian traditional, he really gets this style, I love the vivid photographs of the buildings he produced in high Georgian, they are just breathtaking. I really enjoyed all of the photographs and the text was highly informative. I must admit I did not love all of his buildings, but I did appreciate the first rate photography and even the buildings that where not my taste, I found an appreciation of through this book, and that is saying something....uh I think?
