Eric Owen Moss Construction Manual, 1988-2008
The Southern California Institute of Architecture is pleased to present Eric Owen Moss, director of SCI-Arc, in conversation with Frances Anderton, host of DnA: Design and Architecture on 89.9 KCRW and Los Angeles editor of Dwell Magazine. We interviewed Eric last April, a very interesting conversation. You can check his interview here. A book signing and reception will follow the discussion.
The book features 40 projects from Eric Owen Moss Architects, the Culver City-based firm Moss founded in 1973. The nearly 1,600-page manual includes first sketches, models, preliminary drawings, fabrications, and construction photos. Twenty-one of the featured projects have been built and several more are in the pipeline. Moss has taught, lectured and exhibited internationally; he has been the director of SCI-Arc since 2002.
