Synopsis: Fumihiko Maki (b. 1928), who was honoured with a Pritzker Prize in 1993, is known for subtle but technologically innovative buildings that thoughtfully relate to the people who use them and to their surroundings. This volume includes over 40 key projects selected by Maki, each of which is illustrated in detail and described by Maki himself, including analysis of how they have influenced his design thinking. Three prominent historians, Kenneth Frampton, David Stewart, and Mark Mulligan, have contributed essays on different aspects of Maki's life and work. The inclusion of a wide range of projects, from early experimental work to buildings under construction now, allows the reader to understand 50 years of the work of this master architect.

About the Author: Fumihiko Maki (b.1928)is principal of Maki & Associates in Tokyo and a 1993 recipient of the Pritzker Prize. Major projects have included the National Museum of Art in Kyoto, the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, and the Yerba Buena Gardens Visual Arts Center in San Francisco. Maki's current projects include Tower 4 at the former World Trade Center site (scheduled to open in 2011), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's media lab and the Aga Khan Development Network's Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat in Ottawa, Canada.Kenneth Frampton is an internationally respected architectural critic who holds the Ware Professorship at the Graduate School of Architecture and Planning, Columbia University, New York.
