Description

This monograph is the first to document all of the key built works by Morphosis, a Los Angeles-based practice headed by Thom Mayne and one of the most influential architecture firms of the past 20 years. Morphosis’ unconventional geometries, beautifully executed, sculptural models and complex, computer-generated drawings stimulated a new era of architectural experimentation in the early 1980s.

This book consists of bold, documentary-style colour photographs of 35 completed buildings presented in an almost cinematic layout, and publishes for the first time together all of Morphosis’ completed work in its entirety: from the early residential and restaurant projects in Los Angeles to the most up-to-the-minute large-scale work beyond California and the United States in Canada, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and Austria.

Mayne’s oeuvre is characterized by intellectual rigour and artistic vigour, both of which this monograph captures with combined clarity and flair.
