Description


Few design firms are as celebrated as San Antonio-based LakeFlato Architects, the winners of more than three hundred international, national, and regional awards, including the American Institute of Architects' Firm of the Year Award. This book features the firm's large-scale pursuits: arresting, airy, and sustainable public buildings.

Featuring more than three hundred stunning color photographs, LakeFlato explores sixteen recent projects from across the United States. The images--of Mississippi's rustic-modern and ecologically resilient Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, the crystalline Witte Museum, the sinuous Confluence Park structures in San Antonio, and other spaces--are grouped by themes reflecting the designers' ethos: nature, place, craft, and restraint. Architects Kengo Kuma, David Miller, Warren T. Byrd Jr., Stefanos Polyzoides, Vivian Loftness, and Lance Hosey provide guest commentary, delving into the works and themes and connecting them to LakeFlato's larger mission of creating a meaningful architecture that brings people into contact with the natural environment while facilitating culture and community.
