James Wines is a larger-than-life character whose work cuts a swathe through modern architecture. Since 1970, when he founded SITE, the highly regarded architecture and environmental arts organisation based in New York, he and his practice have led the way to a more socially and environmentally responsive architecture. Early work from the office includes iconic structures such as the Notch Project (1977), in Sacramento, California. Today, SITE offers a wide range of design services including buildings, landscapes, public spaces, interiors, graphics and industrial projects. This book documents some of the studio's most outstanding projects, offering a valuable insight into SITE's creative approach.
