Examining 20 years’ worth of the work of architect Paola Iacucci, who has spent a career between New York and Italy, this document is a record of the often heterogeneous experience of architecture. Iacucci’s projects, drawings, models, buildings, and writings offer a deep and sharp sensibility and insight into contemporary architecture as they unfold two different perspectives: those of the East and the West. The two parts of this consideration—the Book of the East and the Book of the West—investigate the subtle relation between the concepts of the void and the solid or material in architecture in two very different worlds. An additional, 100-page booklet with architectural drawings is also included.
