Description - Insight and On Site by A. J. Diamond

A gorgeous book, with full colour throughout, featuring photos of the firm's striking designs and architectural diagrams. Though based in Toronto, Diamond & Schmitt are a truly international firm, with both a global reputation for award-winning projects like the Toronto Opera House, and an impressive record of international work (currently including the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia). This book details several major international projects, including Jerusalem City Hall (Isreal), The Jewish Community Center (New York), and the Max M. Fisher Music Center (Michigan). The firm has won more than 140 awards, including six Governor General's Awards and an aia design award, and in 2004 and 2007, Business Week/Architectural Record named two of their projects on their list of the world's ten best buildings.
