CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Individually and in partnership, as architects, educators, and advocates, the
four principals of Platt Byard Dovell White Architects have made an indelible
impression on the contemporary and historic architecture of New York City and
beyond. In projects that range from historic preservation--the Charles A. Dana
Discovery Center in Central Park and the Supreme Court of New York's Appellate
Division First Department--to modernist interventions--the Saginaw Art Museum
in Michigan and New 42nd Street Studios near Times Square--the firm's work is
notable for its balance of innovation and tradition, of working within an urban
context while contributing to that context.
The first monograph on this award-winning firm, Architecture on Architecture
illustrates the philosophy of Platt Byard Dovell White in its presentation of
buildings and projects. Portfolios of twenty-three institutional, commercial,
and residential works are complemented by two essays--one by noted critic
Kenneth Frampton--and a lively timeline showing the personal and professional
evolution of the architects.
