Morphosis Monograph – Architecture
Buildings by Thom Mayne, Los Angeles, CA, USA – series from Rizzoli
4 Mar 2009
MORPHOSIS: Buildings & Projects 1999-2008, the latest monograph in the series from Rizzoli which has documented the growth and progression of the firm since 1989, has just been released. In his opening essay titled “Some Scattered Thoughts Instead of a Foreword,” Thom Mayne outlines “… specific areas of interest that inform the works presented in this volume: the use of materials and technology; an expansive view of landscape as a parallel to that found in biological/ ecological processes; and a search for strategies to integrate architecture into the life of the city.”
Sixteen of our most recent projects are included in the 484 page book designed by Lorraine Wild/Green Dragon Office. Each project is accompanied by a short essay that reflects upon the thematic subject matter of each project. Complementing the text are 500 illustrations.
The new www.morphosis.com features our most recent projects, in a completely redesigned interactive environment. Supplementing our new website, www.morphopedia.com, provides an encyclopedic resource for the firm and its work from 1972 to the present. Designed and developed by Use All Five, a Venice-based interactive design agency.
