The Architecture of Kallman McKinnell & Wood

This monograph is appropriately devoted to the architecture of Kallmann, McKinnell & Wood. It records the exhibition of the firm's work accompanying N. Michael McKinnell's 1998 Walter Gropius Lecture at the Graduate School of Design. As such, it reveals only part of the story of the architects' careers. What two generations of American architecture students know well, and what each of the essayists touches upon, is that Gerhard Kallmann and Michael McKinnell have pursued the teaching of architecture with a vigor equal to that for their practice. While many architects combine teaching and practice during the course of their professional lives, few are willing to sustain the demands concurrently over any length of time. For over two decades—and to the direct benefit of both their architecture and their students—Kallmann and McKinnell have shown an equal devotion to both enterprises.
