Eric Owen Moss: The Box
Editor: Preston Scott Cohen Editor: Brooke Hodge Princeton Architectural Press, 1995
The Box presents a detailed examination of a new building by architect Eric Owen Moss. Recently constructed in Culver City, California, this commercial office building, a large, tilted cube dramatically cantilevered on curved steel trusses from a reconfigured 1920s warehouse, has been described by New York Times architecture critic Herbert Muschamp as "a poem of precariousness."
The Box traces the design and construction of this remarkable building. It contains a portfolio of commissioned photographs by Andrew Bush, reproductions of Moss's conceptual sketches, as well as construction photographs and working drawings. It also includes a foreword by Mack Scogin, an interview with Moss by Scott Cohen, an essay by Peter G. Rowe, and a postscript by Brooke Hodge.
