Maki and Associates, the office of Pritzker Prize winner Fumihiko Maki, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and publishes this volume along with an eponymous exhibit to commemorate it. As such, it is a record of the broader context of the office’s half-century of design activity, its priorities and interests, and the social character that its works have subsequently achieved. Reproduced here are a wealth of images, including photos of realised projects, architectural images from early stages in the design process, and drawings, sketches, and diagrams. Together with essays and personal insights from Maki himself, it presents a rich history of this seminal architect.
