Ten Houses: Wheeler Kearns Architects
Oscar Riera Ojeda
Rockport Publishers, 1999 - Architecture - 119 pages
The award-winning Midwestern firm of Wheeler Kearns Architects is driven by its search for the "Simple Solution", and they have eschewed signature style in favor of this elusive, seductive, and lyrical aspect. The firm is uniquely organized as a collective practice, in which each of the seven registered architects equally share the roles of designer, technician, and project manage. They seek out projects with intellectually challenging programs and involved clients because such projects best utilize the firm's talent and coincide with its established goals. The residential work of the award-winning firm of Wheeler Kearns Architects is explored in this fully illustrated monograph.
