Using the great friendship between Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra as a starting point, the book explores how architecture can enliven its surroundings: literally performing for the neighborhood and enriching the curriculum for its students. "This is one in a series of books, each of which tells the story of a single building. It is our hope that as these books accumulate alongside our body of work, they, in their aggregate, will form a profile of our design intentions." Acting as a "profile" of a building as well as contributing to the "profile" of Ennead Architects, the books in the Profile Series employ initial program studies, schematic sketches, early two- and three-dimensional study models, construction shots, final photography and a personal statement by the designer to present an intimate, insiders view of the firms unique approach to every project and to document the creative process. Finished photography combines the precision and technical virtuosity of classic architectural photography with lyrical and personal interpretations of the building, its context, and the people who use it.
