This tribute to his body of work completed between 1975 and 2018 includes such new projects as the Shanghai Poly Theater and Clark Center at Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Each structure is profiled through photographs and architectural drawings, providing an incisive overview on a master of material and form.
