Emilio Ambasz is a monograph devoted to the internationally celebrated
architect and designer who is known for designs that skillfully unite
architecture and city landscapes and showcase spatial and urbanistic proposals
of an absolute originality. Ambasz creates urban complexes that rise like
volcanoes of glass-works of architecture that are natural landscapes and gardens
that turn into artificial mechanisms.
This monograph documents the creative world of this New York-based
architect-designer in both large- and small-scale designs: from the crystalline
complex of the San Antonio Botanical Center in Texas (1982) to the Aqua Dove
Mineral Water Bottle and an opaque and granite office tower in Phoenix (1998).
Ambasz is a master designer at the height of his genius and this book focuses on
his more recent works throughout North America.
