They went on to become one of the most creative and productive offices worldwide and have been a strong presence in Europe since the opening of the KPF London office in 1988." "The focus of the book is the European work of the practice which has gained prominence in recent years with a number of imaginative and technically advanced buildings. This volume presents 19 selected buildings." "Amongst the works included are Thames Court in London, World Trade Center in Amsterdam, Rothermere American Institute in Oxford, Endesa Headquarters in Madrid, House of Representatives in Cyprus, ADIA Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, Parkhaven Tower in Rotterdam, the KBB project in Dusseldorf and Provinciehuis in The Hague.

The Rodin Museum, Seoul by Kevin Kennon( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kohn Pedersen Fox's jewel-like glass pavilion for the Rodin Museum evolved from the search to create a home for two seminal bronzes, The Gates of Hell and The Burghers of Calais, by Auguste Rodin. The tension created between the two pieces suggests gesture and dance, which architect Kevin Kennon interepreted as a kind of pas de deux between two glass walls. To heighten the experience of the museum as a place of contemplation and spirituality, the space is suffused in light with glass walls and ceilings of varying degrees of translucency. The serene space, far removed from the bustle of the Seoul business district, blurs the difference between West and East, between art and commerce, and between the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries."--Jacket

The fourth volume in a series of monographs celebrating the innovative architectural designs of the highly esteemed international firm. KPF initially distinguished itself through its attention to the most characteristic American building type, the skyscraper. The evolution of the tall tower is a key part of a sustainable paradigm in which individual buildings form part of a larger system of vertical centers linked by horizontal networks of public transportation. These "vertical cities" represent a sustainable model for future development where public transport is encouraged, land is conserved, and energy and water uses are reduced. KPF leads the way, creating enduring architecture with contextual sensitivity, flexibility of use, and care for the environment. KPF has achieved international stature, becoming the first firm to be a member of the United Nations Global Compact. This, the fourth volume of their work, explores their recent buildings in detail. The projects include buildings that have transformed the urban fabric of their respective cities, such as the Roppongi Hills Tower complex in Tokyo and the Shanghai World Financial Center, the tallest skyscraper in Asia
