Works by Renzo Piano are distinguished by a unique interplay of
functional, technical and aesthetic aspects. An architect with no
recognisable trademark style, Renzo Piano has designed some of the most
famous buildings in the world: the Pompidou Centre, the headquarters of
the New York Times, the Shard Tower in London, the Whitney Museum in New
York and the recently completed Palace of Justice in Paris. Renown as a
master of construction technology, the Pritzker Prize winner uses the
widest variety of materials and construction methods possible to create
buildings whose designs are heavily inspired by location and function.
This monograph now presents 13 of his works, all previously published by
DETAIL. Extensive project documentation is accompanied by numerous
photos, plans and construction details.
