Item description for Gwathmey Siegel Apartments by Brad Collins, Charles Gwathmey & Paul Goldberger...

Gwathmey Siegel, the award-winning New York-based firm, is acclaimed for its extraordinary houses as well as its high-profile cultural, corporate, and educational work. In the tradition of the highly successful Gwathmey Siegel: Buildings and Projects (Vols. 1 & 2), Rizzoli now presents Gwathmey Siegel: Apartments.
Gwathmey Siegel has long been the architect of choice for clients who want to combine extravagance with an intellectually rigorous, well-crafted modernism. While the houses for which they are so justly renowned often exceed 20,000 square feet, the apartments they have designed are frequently one-tenth that size. The work, however, does not suffer from this reduction in scale, rather it takes on a stunning intensity-as if the ideas encompassed in the bigger houses are in the apartments compressed into tight, concentrated forms. Expressing an unsurpassed level of detail and craftsmanship, the 17 apartments featured in this monograph document the evolution of the firm's design ethos over 30 years of practice from a minimalist modernism to what has sometimes been described as baroque modernism.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gwathmey Siegel Apartments?

Beautiful book featuring beautiful work  Mar 25, 2007
I must preface this review by saying I am biased. It was my great fortune to be the co-designer of the building featured on the cover of this tome.
It was a unique experience to collaborate with the talented architects at Gwathmey Siegel. Their inventiveness, boldness, and underlying respect for timeless qualities of design justifies the breadth of their commissions.
The inclusion of plans, lovely photography and a brief but critical narrative makes this an excellent book for both architects and laypeople.
