An eminent professor at Cooper Union and principal of her own firm, Diane Lewis is a leading figure in contemporary New York architecture. Inside Out: Architecture offers an insider's view of her work over the last 25 years, a portfolio embracing galleries, museums and performance spaces, from Kent to Paul Kasmin, Claude Bernard and the New York Kunsthalle, not to mention film studios, theaters, museums and residences. A recipient of the Rome Prize who trained at the offices of I.M. Pei and Richard Meier, Lewis creates civic works attuned to the relationships between contemporary forms and existing structural history. Inside Out brings readers a unique vision of architecture as a parallel medium to contemporary literature and conceptual art, and showcases Diane Lewis's highly articulate and accomplished designs.
