EVA Maddox : Innovator, Designer, Educator Hardback
by Romy Wyllie
Award-winning designer Eva Maddox has been described as a "change agent" and a "visionary design theorist and practitioner who has reshaped the interior design profession and raised the standards of commercial design and architecture." This comprehensive monograph traces her creative journey from a tiny town in rural Tennessee to her own renowned firm, Eva Maddox Associates, to a dedicated branding studio within the international architectural practice Perkins + Will.
Profusely illustrated with sketches, plans, source material, and color photography, the book includes 35 major projects: colleges, hospitals, financial institutions, company headquarters, libraries, museums, showrooms, and retail establishments, culminating in a series of designs for furniture and workspace giant Haworth.
Introductory chapters on Maddox's innovative branding and patterning and a final section on her extensive experience in teaching, including the founding of graduate school Archeworks, complete this review of the career and legacy of an exceptional woman of design.
