Cool Spaces captures the series premiere of the "Cool Spaces" show, public televisions first program to explore the most provocative and bold American architecture of the last decade. The book highlights the first twelve buildings of the series for a fascinating glimpse into the mysteries and realities of architecture. Readers will learn how architects create their designs, why buildings look the way they do, and what it really takes to bring a building to reality. Concept sketches and renderings, additional interviews with the architects, and on-set photos from production shoots illuminate the stories behind the buildings, which include the Ruvo Center in Las Vegas by Frank Gehry, the Seattle Public Library in Seattle by OMA/REX, and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn by SHoP Architects. A narrative and visual journey through the shows production and content, Cool Spaces presents a new and accessible understanding of architecture. Sponsored by the American Institute of Architects.
