Ennead Profile Series 1:

2) William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park
3) Heimbold Visual Arts Center
4) Brooklyn Museum, Entry Pavilion and Plaza
The Profile Series is comprised of books on single buildings, which together communicate the firm’s sensibilities. Corresponding to Ennead Architects’ philosophy of creating a singular and appropriate architectural response to the particular program, site, and client conditions, each book is, itself, a distinct reflection of the individual building and its makers.
The Designer of the building is deeply involved in the book’s design and evolution: the building is translated, shared and re-explored for the reader from the intimate perspective of the architect who designed it. The result is a presentation of architecture that is fresh, at times messy, and never didactic.
The first box set in the Ennead Profile Series includes the following titles with an in-depth look at each building: New York Hall of Science, William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park, Heimbold Visual Arts Center, and Brooklyn Museum, Entry Pavilion, and Plaza. These volumes correspond to the Ennead Architects’ philosophy of creating a singular and appropriate architectural response to building site and client conditions. Parallel to the architecture story is a guest essay that illuminates an aspect of the building’s client, program, or site that informed the design. Guest essays have included poems, speeches, and articles by significant personalities involved on the client-side, or people whose reflections somehow enhance the understanding of the project.
