As the highly anticipated second volume on Goettsch Partners in IMAGES' iconic Master Architect series, this book reveals the firm's most significant leading projects in global design, both built and in progress. Moreover, it explores how the firm's contemporary approach to design philosophy is based on the belief that exceptional planning and design respond to the combination of functional, technical, economic and aesthetic factors.

Filled throughout with full-colour photographs, detailed plans, sketches and diagrams, and illuminating texts, the pages within this superb monograph catalog a national and international portfolio of works, including the planning and design of large-scale commercial developments, corporate campuses, cultural and institutional buildings, federal and local government facilities, hotels and residential complexes, and public open space.

Through a progression of leadership transitions, Goettsch Partners (GP) traces its roots to the Chicago practice started by Mies van der Rohe in 1938. James Goettsch joined the practice in 1992 and has instilled a culture in which this legacy informs and inspires the search for its own timeless materiality and clarity of architectural expression - appropriate for the 21st century. GP is an architecture firm with a global perspective. Based in Chicago, with additional offices in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, it shares a singular approach to design that combines seasoned experience with a passion for exploration and innovation. Its completed and active projects span five continents. The firm's partners have deliberately sought and encouraged a diversified practice. As a result, it has developed a rich history of transforming complex challenges across a range of project types into singular design solutions of lasting impact and value.
