[This is] the first book to document what the Pritzker Prize laureates have said and written about their field. Paired with their running commentary is a selection of their major built works, seen in more than 700 images." Represented among the 35 are: Peter Zumthor, Rem Koolhaas, Christian de Portzamparc, Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry, Richard Meier, I.M. Pei, and Philip Johnson. ***NOTE: Additional shipping charges for this heavy book may apply for non-U.S. customers, or for Priority Mail shipping within the U.S.; if this causes you concern, please inquire before placing your order.*** .
