A member of the Modern Movement’s postwar generation, he has shown that modernism can accommodate lyrical, emotional, dynamic, and regional influences within its abstract construct. His design concepts, which grow from the individual character of site and client, defy stylistic categorization. ‘The Architecture of Gunnar Birkerts’ not only presents the architect’s work, but also explores the influences of his background, design methodology, and philosophy on his buildings.” Quantity Available: 1.
