This second monograph represents circumstances and projects, which have occurred beyond the span of Hansen’s original monograph. Through sketches, diagrams, rendering, photographs and narratives, this book portrays the criteria and conceptual thinking that was primary in finding an inclusive architectural solution for a diverse selection of projects. Though, Hansen has always attempted to create a comprehensive matrix of interrelated design criteria on his client’s vision, site, context, sustainability, climate, culture and tradition, some issues must be weighted above others. And sometimes, a story must be told that is inexorably tied to the essence of the land or building. These commentaries can even provide deeper meaning than the determinants of the building themselves.
