Good buildings require an understanding of the principles of structure, light, space, and material, but great buildings require an understanding of people. The most successful inspire through the interactions and connections made within them. Gathering is the latest book from the award-winning architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. This collection of work exemplifies 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 fourteen 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 in southern California to Apple Stores located around the world. Through full-color photographs as well as conceptual sketches and diagrams, each case study gives insight into Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s design process, and how the firm’s approach has helped transform clients’ institutions, workplaces, retail environments, research laboratories, and public spaces into extraordinary places for people. An introductory essay and chapter text by noted architectural writer Sam Lubell accompanies this volume.

Sam Lubell is a writer based in New York. He has written nine books about architecture for Phaidon, Rizzoli, Metropolis Books and Monacelli Press. He is a Contributing Editor at the Architect’s Newspaper and writes for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Wallpaper, Dwell, Wired, Metropolis, The Atlantic, Architectural Record, Architect Magazine, Contract, Architectural Review and other publications. He co-curated the exhibition Never Built New York, at the Queens Museum, and the shows Never Built Los Angeles and Shelter: Rethinking How We Live in Los Angeles at the A+D Architecture and Design
Museum > Los Angeles.

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, founded in 1965 is an architecture practice with offices in Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle and San Francisco. The firm is recognized for elegant and humane design, ranging in scale and circumstance from major academic, civic, cultural, and corporate buildings to private homes, large and small. Its architecture is alive to the subtleties of place, both man-made and natural; to the varied natures of people; to the character of institutions; and to the rich possibilities of material and means of construction.

Since 1965, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has received more than 600 design awards, including nine AIA National Honor Awards and three AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) Top Ten Green Projects. In 1994, the firm received the American Institute of Architects Architecture Firm Award and in 2010, Peter Bohlin was awarded the Gold Medal by the American Institute of Architects, the highest honor an individual American architect can receive.
