Robert A. M. Stern: Buildings is the first monograph to focus solely on more than fifteen years of the firm's nonresidential work. Divided thematically, it contains over thirty projects, each thoroughly documented with extensive photography and drawings. The introduction to the book, as well as those to each section, is an unusually personal essay, discussing Stern's education in the era of functionalist Modernism, his efforts to further and even to reestablish traditions, and the social, cultural, and symbolic obligations that must inform all successful buildings.
Highlights include the just-completed Colgate Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia and the William H. Gates Computer Science Building at Stanford University, as well as a series of commissions for the Walt Disney Company. Other notable works are the Ohrstrom Library at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire; the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts; and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, New York.
