Sections through a Practice: Cesar Pelli & Associates offers a unique analysis of the diverse and significant work of Cesar Pelli & Associates. Based on a concept by Bruce Mau Design, the book draws upon the firm's entire body of work to reveal themes that cross in multiple and distinct directions. It focuses on a series of these themes, making the firm's practice tangible, offering a richer, truer rendering and understanding of its work. This book presents not only the work of the firm but also its innovative and collaborative approach to the design process. With essays by Joseph Giovannini on the recent work of the firm and by Hiroyuki Suzuki on its work in Japan, Sections through a Practice provides insight into both the latest projects of the firm as well as its broad global practice. Photographs of nearly two hundred projects, both built and designed, have been filtered by these themes to present a visual coherence and rationale for each. Bruce Mau Design's graphic approach to Sections through a Practice creates an individual visual approach for each theme. 'Cuts' between sections alert the reader to the specificity and succession of the themes. The book's size and materials place it emphatically between a picture book and a novel-large enough to feature detailed photography but compact enough to be comfortably read.
