The comprehensive volume on legendary architecture firm Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman on the advent of their fiftieth anniversary.
Known for an architecture of distinctive modernism that is well crafted, refined, and often luxurious, Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman have been for decades the go-to firm for some of the nation's most discerning clientele, including well-known figures such as Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, and Ronald Lauder. They are particularly beloved for their residential work--their country homes, town houses, and condos--but are masters of a wide range of architectural forms. The book considers, in richly detailed and exhaustive photography, the stunning work of the firm, from Charles Gwathmey's first project, a beach house for his parents in Amagansett when just out of school--a project that surprised and stunned the design world--to the firm's most recent creations across the globe. Included here are contemporary masterworks such as the Ishraq Tower in Dubai, apartments and town houses in New York, the W Hotel in Hoboken, an oceanfront home in Malibu, and the MOCA North Miami + Expansion in Miami, among many others. This book is a thrilling exploration of sumptuous apartments, cutting-edge homes, and innovative office and apartment towers designed and built over the course of a meteoric career.
