CAIRO BOOKS's Description
American architect Margaret McCurry is known for her extraordinary series of
private residences, all featuring a synthesis of modern classicism and the
American vernacular. Order and symmetry, refinement and distillation, are
characteristics not only of McCurry's design, but of her design process as
well. This book, the first volume on her work, presents nineteen of her houses,
along with selected other projects, and an absorbing personal narrative of her
journey to become a principal in the Chicago architectural practice Tigerman
In twenty-five "short stories," which are accompanied by beautiful color
photography and carefully delineated plans and other drawings, McCurry tells
the tales behind the design and construction of her projects. In her honest
assessment of the outcome of each, McCurry convincingly expounds upon her own
philosophy of architecture, one in which the art of architecture is paramount.
