DRAWING INTO ARCHITECTURE: THE SKETCHES OF ANTOINE PREDOCK. Christopher Curtis Mead. University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, 2016. 224 pp. with 180 ills. (117 col.). 24 x 34 cm. LC 2015-33707 ISBN 9780826357083 In English.
Publisher's description: Known internationally for designing buildings that take their inspiration from the land, Antoine Predock explores many of his ideas about architecture through the fluent medium of drawing. This collection of 172 sketches, many published here for the first time, surveys nearly fifty years of his work. Presented in a format that evokes Predock's sketchbooks, the drawings are arranged according to the logic of their internal topologies. Like a Mobius strip, they fold back on themselves, equating objects in space to drawn connections on a surface through a continuous process of transformation. Whether sketching sites around the world or designing buildings, Predock has learned through years of experience to condense multiple sensations and ideas into line and color. Christopher Curtis Mead traces Predock's aesthetic impulse back to the primal sense that through drawing we reach out to touch the world.
