The Manuel Cadrecha Monograph showcases and represents the last 15 years of Cadrecha’s work across a wide range of project types, clients, and geographies. From city-scale international developments to neighborhood schools, these works are grounded in his abiding interest in materials and form, color and light, the old in the new, and the search for the inspiring in the everyday.

“My father was an engineer. When I was growing up, he instilled in me an admiration for ancient Rome: its civilization, culture, and design. When I decided to become an architect, my father was delighted because he believed that architecture is the last humanist profession. Looking back on my career, I agree with him.”

– Manuel Cadrecha

Featuring preliminary hand sketches along with personal insights into the design inspiration for these now iconic buildings, the book seeks to de-mystify the architectural process, clearly identifying inspiration sources, and recognizing the benefits of a collaborative design process.

As a Design Director for Perkins+Will, Manuel Cadrecha’s daily work is about crafting a unified design tone and orchestrating teams that elevate the possibilities for each project. Over a 35-year career, Manuel has become an ardent advocate for interdisciplinary design, driving an evolution towards a creative studio model that works across design scales and disciplines.
