Open Studio: The Work of Robert A.M. Stern Architects

Open Studio: The Work of Robert A.M. Stern Architects offers a window into the methods and unique culture of a firm that has achieved international success across a broad range of building types. Illustrated by hand sketches and photos of study models, design sessions, and site visits, the book pulls back the curtain on the creative collaboration behind the scenes. Nearly 100 pages of photographs of finished work, including academic buildings, museums, houses, apartment houses, and office towers, demonstrate the firm's ability to realize modern buildings in a wide variety of stylistic vocabularies through a commitment to fundamental principles of architecture and a respect for context and history.
