With a look at new buildings by Bart Prince, this book examines the work of a uniquely American contemporary architect.

The work of Bart Prince is recognized internationally for both its seminal creative vision and for carrying on an American tradition of individualism in architecture originating with Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Bruce Goff. Prince shares with these pioneers a fundamental way of thinking about modern American architecture, which in his work he has combined with a firm belief in the experiential impact of a building to render a contemporary style all his own.

Originally published a decade ago, this updated version includes five new houses, demonstrating the architect’s maturing style and continued commitment to creating transcendent experiences in manipulated space. Stunning photographs and floor plans bring the reader as close as possible to experiencing these uniquely formed, magnificent buildings. A remarkable collaboration between the author, the photographer, and the architect, The Architecture of Bart Prince is the only comprehensive introduction to one of the most creative architects practicing in America today.

Comments to eBook The Architecture of Bart Prince: A Pragmatics of Place (Revised and Updated)
Kerry
Because of the small amount of work that Bart Prince has produced over the years has resulted on very little articles of his work. This book is packed with great photos of his most prominent work. There are even a few sections and details of some. The only quarrel I have is that the first 3/4 of the book is just pictures and the last actual text. What little text there is talkes little about him, his family, and the history of the area the majority of his buildings are located. The book doesn't actually mention much if any on the design, process, or construction of his art. I still rated the book a 4 because you can still learn alot simply through the great photography.

If Frank Lloyd Wright is King, than indeed Bart Prince is Prince. The photographs in the book are brilliant and Christopher Mead's Commentary is awesome and highly informative as well. Showing a lot into Bart Prince the man himself. I hope one day to own a Bart Prince Home.

A classic for the Bart Prince fan.

If your a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, Greene and Greene or Kendrick Kellogg, then you will find this book quiet fascinating.
Prince seems to take his work a step further than most architects offering a touch of fantasy to his architecture. The book has lots of glossy photos, floor plans and information on Prince's life and work.

A book as interesting as the funky forms it analizes. I have had the honour of both reading this book and attending Professor Mead's architecture retrospective class series. The book is filled with an incledibly informed, and informative text which is supported with excellent photos and diagrams. I highly reccomend this book for students of architecture, or just for an interesting read, and if you find yourself in the area of the University Of New Mexico, I highly suggest you do yourself the favour of sitting in on one of Professor Mead's lectures
Since I personlly know both author/wife and architect I can look back over 12 or 13 years and say, uniquivocally, that Dr Mead and his wife/photographer have not only escaped the dreaded, and all too common categorization and sycophantic drooling that characterises most architectural books, articals, essays, reviews ... just pick a category and some adjectives for yourself. THIS IS GOOD, SOUND WORK -- as an architect who benefited from both their perspectives, and as a frequent editor -- THIS IS GOOD, SOUND WORK. Top drawer.
