Charles Gwathmey and Robert Siegel: Buildings and Projects 1964–1984 (Harper & Row, 1984) is a wonderful, comprehensive monograph of the New York-based practice. The book has been compiled by Peter Arnell, Ted Bickford, and Ivan Zaknic. See also the Gwathmey Siegel monograph published by Whitney Library of Design in 1981.
We believe that architecture is generated by the investigation of the specific problem, resulting in a process of ordered evaluations, of analytical priorities and of hierarchical interpretations, all relating to site, orientation, program, circulation, spatial sequence, structure and technology.
