Description

In over thirty years of practice, Robert A. M. Stern has developed a distinctive architecture committed to the synthesis of tradition and innovation and, above all, to the creation and enhancement of a meaningful sense of place. Inspired by the great legacy of American architecture, the firm of Robert A. M. Stern Architects has produced a variety of building types in a range of stylistic vocabularies. The design of houses, for which the firm initially gained notice, remains a cornerstone of the practice. Beautifully illustrated in color, this major monograph – a companion volume to the best-selling Robert A. M. Stern: Buildings – thoroughly documents more than forty-five houses built over the course of thirty years.
