Description - Renzo Piano Building Workshop; Complete Works Volume 3 by Peter Buchanan
This third volume closes poignantly with the completion of Piano's most monumental and extraordinary work, Kansai Airport. An introductory essay, "From Pompidou to Kansai", reviews the full scope of his career. The most recent Renzo Piano Building Workshop projects are also included. These are described and illustrated with photographs and drawings which chart their development through design and construction stages, to completion. The last section of the book is dedicated exclusively to Kansai, describing the background to its design and construction, as well as a "walkthrough" that enables the reader to experience the building in a direct way.
