Each book begins with this statement: This is one in a series of books, each of which tells the story of a single building. It is our hope that as these books accumulate alongside our body of work, they, in their aggregate, will form a profile of our design intentions. Acting as a ‘profile’ of a building as well as contributing to the ‘profile’ of Ennead Architects, each book employs initial program studies, schematic sketches, early two- and three-dimensional study models, construction shots, final photography, and a personal statement by the designer to present an intimate, insider’s view of the creative process. A supplementary piece written by a critic, historian, or client, or a ‘found’ text that relates to the designer’s aspirations or building’s program, site, function is typically included. The photographic narrative combines the precision and technical virtuosity of classic architectural photography with more lyrical and personal interpretations of the building, its context, and the people who use it.

Ennead 7 includes four projects:

Weill Greenberg Center and Belfer Research Building, Weill Cornell Medicine; The Zucker Hillside Hospital Inpatient Care Center; and Stanford University Bing Concert Hall

Ennead creates architecture that shapes the public realm; this has been central to the practice since 1963. The studio is known for projects ranging from museums and performing arts centers to complex laboratory, research and teaching facilities for higher education, from large-scale infrastructure projects and urban plans to hotels and residential and commercial buildings. The designs have been acclaimed for their formal and affective power, for technical virtuosity, for sustainable design, and for their significant contributions to the cultural life of their communities and the enhancement of their physical contexts. Ennead is committed to the transformative development of integrated architectural solutions and approaches inherent challenges as opportunities to enhance vital connections to the natural and social environments
