Central to the work of Robert A. M. Stern is a commitment to architecture that reinterprets the past to serve contemporary life. "Buildings and Towns" explores the application of that principle to a wide range of building types, including libraries, university buildings, cultural centers, offices, health care facilities, courthouses, and recreational complexes completed throughout the world over the past twenty years. The sequel to the highly successful "Robert A. M. Stern: Buildings" (1996), this volume also incorporates master plans for towns and campuses. Among the sixty-five featured projects are the Miami Beach Public Library, the new campus for the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, multiple projects for Disney including the Ambassador Hotel in Japan, and a range of apartment towers culminating with 15 Central Park West, the largest residential structure in New York City, opening in fall 2007.

Illustrated. New in New jacket. Folio. New York: Monacelli, 2007. First edition. Folio. Cloth binding, 548 pp. Illustrated profusely in color. This large and abundantly illustrated catalog explores the successful results of Robert A.M. Stern's architectural practice, and how his reinterpretations of a wide range of building types of the past serve the needs of contemporary life. Among the 64 projects here, completed since the mid-1980s, are the Miami Beach Public Library, the new campus for the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, the Ambassador Hotel in Japan and other projects for Disney, and apartment towers like 15 Central Park West, which was the largest residential structure in New York City when it opened in 2007. The dean of the Yale University School of Architecture as well as a founding partner of Stern & Hagmann in 1969 and the founder of Robert A.M. Stern Architects in 1977, Stern is an architect little known outside of his field, if only because his buildings never intend to take the spotlight. Rather, Stern's hundreds of built projects reveal his commitment to a synthesis of tradition and innovation--buildings that harmonize with their surroundings to enhance a meaningful sense of place--and have earned him such awards as the Vincent Scully Prize from the National Building Museum and Philadelphia's Edmund N. Bacon Prize. New in new dust jacket, protected with an archival-quality mylar cover.
