Posted on May 09, 2011 | Books | Leave A Comment

The Marquand Books title Max Gordon: Architect for Art is now available through DAP. Gordon, who died in 1990 at age 59, designed numerous ambitious projects including New Scotland Yard in London:

Whether creating enormous exhibition spaces or designing living quarters for collectors and homes and studio facilities for artists, the acclaimed architect Max Gordon shaped the physical settings of art in the world’s major metropolises during his influential career. This first monograph offers a detailed overview of Gordon’s projects for the art world, from the 100,000-square-foot exhibition space he designed for the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid to the SoHo home he remodeled for Richard Serra, demonstrating throughout his elegant use of light, space and minimal decoration, and displaying his gift for always highlighting the art.    

The publication has generated buzz, including posts on the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog and Judith H. Dobrzynski’s Real Clear Arts blog.
