Abstract:

"Diagram Diaries is an unprecedented illustrated chronicle that showcases Eisenman's work to date - from his earliest house designs to the heralded Wexner Center in Columbus, Ohio, through current commissions such as the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences in New York City. This volume is more than a straightforward survey of the architect's work, however; it is by its very nature an engaging exploration of the process of design. Essays and detailed descriptions are built along a central axis tracing Eisenman's career.

Project profiles are organized according to their "generating motif": the interiority of architecture, or projects generated by the internal forces of shapes and forms; and the exteriority of architecture, projects governed by external forces such as site and scientific process. Through Eisenman's own essays and through extensive illustration, readers come to understand Eisenman's diagram-based approach to design whereby sites and structures can be manipulated in diagram form."--BOOK JACKET.
