Werner Blaser2001 1st Edition, Birkhauser-Publishers for Architecture, Basel
Quarto. Silver letters embossed on black vertically grooved boards in NEAR FINE condition, with a NEAR FINE dust jacket. Intense blue front endpapers and equally intense red endpapers at the back. 176 pages with its review of 25 years of their interior design. Includes biographies of their principals and an introduction by Stanley Abercrombie. Donald Powell and Robert Kleinschmidt, partners in their eponymous, preeminent Chicago interior design firm, are identified here loosely as disciples of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and, perhaps more importantly, as apprentices early in their careers at the influential architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Includes a photographic record of their projects with models, drawings, and commentary followed by list of their total works during the period. Protected in a clear Brodart dust jacket cover.
