Good buildings require an understanding of the principles of structure, light, and space, but great buildings require an understanding of people. The most successful inspire through the social interactions and personal connections made within them. Gathering is a collection of fourteen projects that exemplify how architecture has the power to bring people together by design, allowing them to engage with one another in new ways, to generate ideas, share their passions and build communities.
The projects included in this volume range greatly in size, function, and aesthetic, from the High Meadow Dwellings at Fallingwater to the Newport Beach Civic Center and Park to Apple Stores located around the world. Each case study is evidence of how Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s approach has a transformational impact on their clients that extends beyond the delivery of a physical object.
