Book description
Nine books in the “Building Blocks” series (Princeton Architectural Press, 1999 & 2000): 1) Chapel at Ronchamp; 2) Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater; 3) The Salk Institute; 4) The Seagram Building; 5) Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West; 6) The TWA Terminal; 7) The United Nations; 8) The Whitney Museum; and 9) The Yale Art Architecture Building. The Building Blocks series presents icons of modern architecture as interpreted by the photographer Ezra Stoller. Each cloth-bound book in the series contains at least 80 pages of rich duotone images. Taken just after the completion of each project, these photographs provide a unique historical record of the buildings in use, documenting the people, fashions, and furnishings of the period. Through Stoller's photographs, we see these buildings the way the architects wanted us to know them. In the preface to each volume Stoller tells of his personal relationship with the architect of each project and recounts his experience photographing it. Brief introductions reveal the unique history of each building; also included are newly drawn plans.
