The first book on the brilliant young architect Thomas Phifer and the work of his firm, Thomas Phifer and Partners.
Thomas Phifer and Partners is recognized for its distinct transformation of modernism.
The essence of timeless buildings--simplicity--is achieved through thoughtful responses to the natural environment, study of the human ecology of the site, and a search for appropriate modes of construction, which dictate the forms, spaces, and appearance of buildings.
The firm believes that every structure should occupy a harmonious place within its surroundings by balancing human needs and environmental imperatives.
This book explores all of Phifer's major commissions, including Salt Point House in New York, Salt Lake City Courthouse, and his most recent achievement, the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, which opens in April 2010.
