Text by Lee Skolnick, Foreword by Paul Goldberger
SKOLNICK Architecture + Design Partnership: Public/Private is the first monograph from the award-winning New York–based architectural firm. Covering nearly 40 years of work, the book—presented in a unique double-sided, two-cover format—exhibits projects in both the public and private sectors. Included in the PUBLIC section is an innovative center for entrepreneurial education, a science center built in a former turbine hall, a light-filled synagogue, two colorful and bright public libraries, and a children’s museum inspired by Leonardo da Vinci. The PRIVATE side features a serenely spatial six-story townhouse, a sublimely linear beach house, a residence and matching studios for two painters, and luxurious twin villas in Anguilla.
With text by Founding Principal Lee Skolnick, and a foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic Paul Goldberger; each chapter provides valuable insight into the sensitive planning and highly intellectual process that goes into each project. SKOLNICK Architecture + Design Partnership: PUBLIC/PRIVATE celebrates the accomplishments of a firm that continues tooperate at the top of their game.
