Description - Eric Owen Moss Architects/3585 by Todd Gannon

For nearly three decades, Eric Owen Moss Architects has been at work transforming the former industrial area of the Hayden Tract in Culver City, California into one of the most highly concentrated centres of architectural experimentation in the world. Eric Owen Moss Architects/3585 offers a unique look into the mind and method of one of the most important architects working today through a comprehensive presentation of three schemes designed for a single site in the Hayden Tract since 1991. The book traces the intellectual odyssey of Moss's forty-year career with a comprehensive presentation of a twenty-five year process that led to his recently completed Cactus Tower and Waffle. A wealth of sketches, drawings, models, renderings, working drawings, and extensive photographic documentation provides valuable insight into the cultural and technical complexities at the heart of Moss's provocative architecture.
