Product Details

Praise

“…a sweeping tale of national identity and artistic anxiety. Newhouse ably balances discussions of details—Piano’s abstract, balletic sketches are reproduced here along with handsome aerial photographs of the site—with the drama of the financial stakes and personalities involved.”
The New Yorker

“It’s rare that a book on a single building can sustain itself, but here Newhouse’s does so mightily. Weaving together the cultural center’s many conflicts and contractions—as well as the victories; it is, after all, a beautiful, poetic structure—Chaos and Culture is the kind of architecture book the world needs more of: well researched, culturally astute, and historically sensitive.”
Surface magazine

“Renzo Piano… has emerged over the past 50 years as the Leonardo da Vinci of modern architecture.”
