Emilio Ambasz is a monograph devoted to the internationally celebrated architect and designer who is known for designs that skillfully unite architecture and city landscapes and showcase spatial and urbanistic proposals of an absolute originality. Ambasz creates urban complexes that rise like volcanoes of glass-works of architecture that are natural landscapes and gardens that turn into artificial mechanisms.
This monograph documents the creative world of this New York-based architect-designer in both large- and small-scale designs: from the crystalline complex of the San Antonio Botanical Center in Texas (1982) to the Aqua Dove Mineral Water Bottle and an opaque and granite office tower in Phoenix (1998). Ambasz is a master designer at the height of his genius and this book focuses on his more recent works throughout North America.
