THOM MAYNE, winner of the 2005 Pritzker Architecture Prize, founded the influential firm Morphosis in the early 1970s. Over the past three decades Morphosis has maintained an avant-garde presence among contemporary architecture firms even as it has garnered high-profile, big-budget commissions around the world.
Since Rizzoli published the first volume of the Morphosis series, in 1989, the Los Angeles-based firm has attained the highest levels of international acclaim as it continues to push its critical practice and progressive architecture into new territory. In the tradition of its three comprehensive and visually groundbreaking predecessors, this fourth volume features 575 illustrations in an in-depth survey of Morphosis's activity at the turn of the twenty-first century.
New works presented here include the Caltrans Headquarters in Los Angeles, housing designed for New York's 2012 Olympics bid, the San Francisco Federal Office Building, the Wayne L. Morse United States Courthouse in Eugene, Oregon, and major academic projects in Toronto and Cincinnati, as well as a New Academic Building for The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science & Art in New York City.
