For Robert A.M. Stern, history is the lens through which he envisions an architecture for today. Robert A.M. Stern: Buildings and Projects 2010-2014 is the sixth volume in a series that encompasses the breadth of Stern's work since he opened his practice in 1969.
Focusing on the output of Stern's office over the past five years, this volume covers the most globalized period of his practice. Featuring profiles of well over 100 projects built domestically and abroad, Robert A. M. Stern: Buildings and Projects 2010-2014 includes significant projects in Asia, from Hong Kong to Mainland China, Taiwan to India. In the United States his educational, cultural, commercial, and residential projects continue to explore and expand the form languages of classical and traditional American architectures. Stern's imprint on campuses across the U.S. is strong, reflecting the position that education holds in Stern's ethic, as an educator and dean of the architecture school at Yale University, with new additions to Drexel University in Philadelphia, Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. But Stern also remains key to the ongoing development of his native New York City, with new residential towers underway on the High Line, Central Park South and at Hudson Yards.
