Herbert Lewis Kruse Blunck: Form and Technology
L'Arca Edizioni, 2001 - Architecture - 99 pages
The architecture of the Herbert Lewis Kruse Blunck firm based in Des Moines, Iowa stands out for the distinctly urban nature of its impeccable functionalism and the way it knits neatly into the fabric of the city. This approach allows the architecture to affirm its own identity, slipping into the dynamic of modern-day architecture through a carefully gauged design idiom.
