CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Central to the work of Robert A. M. Stern is a commitment to architecture that
reinterprets the past to serve contemporary life. Buildings and Towns explores
the application of that principle to a wide range of building types, including
libraries, university buildings, cultural centers, offices, health care
facilities, courthouses, and recreational complexes completed throughout the
world over the past twenty years. The sequel to the highly successful Robert A.
M. Stern: Buildings (1996), this volume also incorporates master plans for
towns and campuses.
Among the sixty-five featured projects are the Miami Beach Public Library, the
new campus for the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia,
multiple projects for Disney including the Ambassador Hotel in Japan, and a
range of apartment towers culminating with 15 Central Park West, the largest
residential structure in New York City, opening in fall 2007.
