Architect is a unique work that offers an unprecedented view into the minds of some of the most creative thinkers, dreamers, and builders of the last three decades. Jean Nouvel speaks of the similarities between film and architecture, Robert Venturi finds ideas in 'gas stations as well as Borromini and Chartes,' James Stirling believed that the best architecture was 'a gift to the city'. And Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa aspire to a certain evanescence in their work, what they call their own 'imaginative principles.' These comments are among the abundance of ideas, hopes and inspirations expressed in this richly assembled volume, where the voice of the architect is privileged over the more customary critic or scholar. Here, it is the architects themselves - 35 Pritzker Prize Laureates, deemed the leading architects in the world - who speak directly to us about what they do and why. The Pritzker Prize is the most prestigious international prize for architecture. Architect presents all 33 recipients of the Pritzker Prize, and captures in pictures and in their own words the awe-inspiring achievements of each architect. Organized by architect, each chapter features approximately four to six major works that represent a range of skills, materials, and methods, as well as a variety of structures including museums, libraries, transportation hubs, hotels, places of worship, and more. The text, culled from diaries, interviews, articles, speeches, and notebooks, and provided by each architect, illuminates his works and enlightens on topics such as his influences and inspirations, personal philosophy, and aspirations for his own work and the future of architecture. The book includes 700 stunning and fascinating photographs, blueprints, sketches, and CAD drawings representing each architect's major works.
