ISBN: 9780500343104 Categories: ,

Renzo Piano, Kenneth Frampton


Renzo Piano has created some of the most emblematic buildings of our age, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Shard in London, the Parco della Musica in Rome, and the New York Times Building in New York City. Here, Renzo Piano himself – whose many international awards include the prestigious Pritzker Prize – presents in his own words the works on which he has built his reputation over a span of 50 years.

More than eighty works are described (almost twice as many as featured in the original edition that this volume supersedes), accompanied by over 1,000 images, including new photographs, drawings and sketches, both intimate and authoritative, all with commentaries by the architect that combine personal anecdote and technical description with original insights. This is an unmatched introduction to the work of one of the world’s most influential and inspiring architects.
