New. One of the most acclaimed designers of his generation, Renzo Piano established his international reputation through his collaboration with Richard Rogers and Peter Rice on the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop has since completed projects as diverse as the gallery for the De Menil Collection in the USA and the Columbus International Exposition in Italy. This series of four volumes covers his entire body of work to date. Now available for the first time in paperback, Volume 4 in this outstanding series examines projects from 1989 to 2000, ranging from urban works such as the Postdamer Platz masterplan in Berlin and high-rise towers in Rotterdam and Sydney, to the Beyeler Foundation and the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre in New Caledonia, which exemplifies Piano's sensitivity to site and local tradition, combining traditional materials and techniques with the latest technology.
