Product Description

Synopsis

The practice was formed in 1976 in New York, and rapidly made its mark on international architecture with buildings such as 333 Wacker Drive in Chicago (1979-1983) and DG Bank Headquarters in Frankfurt (1986-1993). They went on to become one of the most creative and productive offices worldwide and in particular made a name for themselves in the field of skyscraper construction. This volume presents 19 selected buildings and projects under construction. The focus of the book is the work of KPF London who has gained prominence in recent years with a number of imaginative and technically advanced buildings. Amongst the projects included are: Thames Court London, World Trade Centre in Amsterdam, Rothermere American Institute in Oxford, ENDESA Headquarters in Madrid etc. All are documented with colour illustrations, technical plans and explanatory texts, which show that KPF's reputation amongst the best is well-deserved. Author Kenneth Powell is an architect and has been an architecture critic for many years.
