Five North American Architects / Kenneth Frampton

Five North American Architects / Kenneth Frampton

Designed with a passion for detail, the book offers an indepth survey of recent work by Steven Holl (New York), Rick Joy (Tucson), John and Patricia Patkau (Vancouver), Stanley Saitowitz (San Francisco), and Brigitte Shim & Howard Sutcliffe (Toronto).

The regional specificity of the work is considered against a larger North American context, allowing one to assess the practice of its architecture today.
