Architect, museum curator, and industrial designer Emilio Ambasz is renowned
for projects that fuse architecture and landscape -- high-rise buildings
enveloped in verdant screens of trees and plants, houses that virtually
disappear beneath mounds of earth. His highly original work defies easy
categorization and analysis, and Ambasz has himself presented his designs as
springing from his deeply felt mythical and poetic desires, serving notice of
his own uncomfortable fit with conventional critical categories.
In this penetrating collection of essays, prominent scholars and architects
take up the challenge and set about rigorously "analyzing Ambasz." In addition
to exploring his architectural work, the authors examine Ambasz's innovative
industrial designs, including the Vertebra chair and dozens of other ingenious
objects. Ambasz's curatorial work, particularly the seminal "New Italian
Design" exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, is also discussed in an
effort to fill out a complex picture of the man. Completing the volume is
Sorkin's interview with Ambasz and Emilio, the self-described visionary and
pragmatic sides of the designer's personality. Photographs and drawings
accompany this lively debate that dramatically expands an understanding of
Ambasz and his work.
