This is one in a series of books, each of which tells the story of a single building. It is our hope that as these books accumulate alongside our body of work, they, in their aggregate, will form a profile of our design intentions.” Acting as a profile” of a building as well as contributing to the profile” of Ennead Architects, the books in the Profile Series employ initial program studies, schematic sketches, early two- and three-dimensional study models, construction shots, final photography and a personal statement by the designer to present an intimate, insider’s view of the firm’s unique approach to every project and to document the creative process. Finished photography combines the precision and technical virtuosity of classic architectural photography with lyrical and personal interpretations of the building, its context, and the people who use it.
Parallel to the architecture story is a guest essay,” which illuminates an aspect of the building’s client, program or site that informed the design. Guest essays have included poems, speeches and essays by a variety of people including significant personalities involved on the client-side or people whose reflections somehow enhance the understanding of the project.
