The work of the award-winning architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson ranges greatly in scale and circumstance from private homes, large and small, to major university, public and cultural buildings. The nineteen projects featured celebrate this diversity and include the elegant retail stores for Apple in New York City, the Liberty Bell Center in Philadelphia, the Ballard Library in Seattle, the headquarters for Pixar Animation Studios in California and several extraordinary private residences in North America. The practice’s architecture is alive to the subtleties of place, both man-made and natural, to the varied natures of people, to the sensibilities of individuals, to the character of institutions and to the rich possibilities of materials and the means of construction.

Each project is extensively depicted in new color photography, evocative conceptual sketches, presentation drawings, and construction details. A foreword by Pritzker Prize winner Glenn Murcutt and essays by a select group of this country’s most accomplished architects and writers accompany this handsome volume.
