Overview: 

Searching for True is a comprehensive monograph documenting the technique and artistry of Cutler Anderson Architects whose sustainable structures pay equal respect to nature, materials, and spirited design. The work of James Cutler and Bruce Anderson reveals a unique approach to sustainable architecture: encouraging environmental stewardship through design that heightens the experience of the natural world. Each project begins with a careful investigation of site and material that culminates in a well-crafted building that fits seamlessly into the landscape.

This monograph examines Cutler Anderson’s practice as it expands beyond the firm’s widely admired houses to include public buildings. Among the thirty award-winning projects featured are innovative structures – residential as well as institutional – that show the firm’s refinement of structural expansiveness, articulated details and multi-layered transitions. Stunning photographs are supplemented by complete project documentation, including sketches, diagrams, presentation drawings, working drawings and models.

Winner of Bookbuilders West's Bookbuilder Certificate of Excellence 2009 in the category Image Driven Trade books.
