Explores the life, creative drive, and notable projects of Japanese American architect Minoru Yamasaki. Best-known for the World Trade Center's Twin Towers, Yamasaki (1912-1986) worked to create moments of surprise, serenity, and delight in buildings around the world. In his adopted home of Detroit, where he lived and worked for the last half of his life, he produced many important designs that range from public buildings to offices and private residences. This surveys select projects spanning from the late 1940s and later, revealing the unique gardens, pools, plazas, skylight atriums, and other oases of respite in these distinctive buildings. Includes prominent works like the Michigan Consolidated Gas Building in downtown Detroit, Temple Beth-El in Bloomfield Township, and landmark buildings on the Wayne State University and College for Creative Studies campuses, as well as smaller medical clinics, office buildings, and private homes (including Yamasaki's own residence).
