"Hugh Newell Jacobsen, Architect" (Book I)
Available, Ships same day
"Hugh Newell Jacobsen, Architect" documents the three-decade-long collaboration of one of America's finest architects and greatest architectural photographers. Jacobsen's projects, located in this country and abroad, have earned over 130 design awards, including six National honor Awards from the American Institute of Architects. Robert Lautman's photographs of Jacobsen's work have been published regularly in Architecture, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest, House & Garden, and many other journals. This book, at last, celebrates their life's work together.
Because, as Jacobsen writes, "the eloquence in the language of architecture is measured by how a building is put together," his famous construction details - hand-lettered by the architect are reproduced on six full pages. Also included are a foreword by Massimo Vignelli, who designed the book, an illustrated biographical chronology, and a list of additional readings by and about Jacobsen.
Thirty years ago, after his education at Yale and apprenticeship in the office of Philip Johnson, Hugh Newell Jacobsen, FAIA, began independent practice in Washington, DC. Since then, his projects have been built and published worldwide, and he has won over 120 design awards, including 21 awards for Excellence from Architectural Record and six National Honor Awards from the American Institute of Architects.
Forward by Yale University Sterling Professor Emeritus, and the author of several books on the subject. Architect Philip Johnson once described Vincent Scully as the “the most influential architectural teacher ever.”
