With Gathering, we wanted to develop a book that explores the collaborative, iterative process from which these spaces evolve and a book that celebrates our shared sense of community. The nature of people has always been a primary influence for our practice; how we move, touch, and see; our intellect, emotions, and dreams; and how we interact with one another.
Our current circumstances have rewritten those interactions for the moment, but we remain hopeful that we’ll rebuild and find the place for the surprise encounter and serendipitous connection that so delight and inspire us. We look forward to the day when we can gather together again. Until then, we invite you to dream with us about all the spectacular places waiting for us.

Listening: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Houses 2009–2015
We all harbor particular memories of houses we’ve encountered, moments and experiences that stay with us well past departure. Finding these nuances demands active listening—not just to the owner or client of the building, but to the site, the culture, the materials, and the house itself. This is exemplified in Listening, a profile of 12 houses designed by renowned architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.Buy
The Nature of Circumstance
A profoundly humane architecture that celebrates a sense of place, context, ecological sensitivity, and an innovative use of materials. Widely acclaimed for designs that feature environmental sensitivity and meticulous attention to detail linking people, buildings, and nature. Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s virtuoso residential and public places showcased in the sequel to Arcadian Architecture are presented in detail.Buy
Arcadian Architecture: 12 Houses
The houses in Arcadian Architecture are exquisitely crafted of wood and stone and other natural materials, and are all sited within beautiful wooded, mountainous, or lakeside locales, from New York State to Washington State, and from the woods of Connecticut to the mountains of Montana. Each house is presented on at least thirty pages, and is depicted by sumptuous new color photography, richly detailed conceptual sketches, presentation drawings, and construction documents.Buy
Grand Teton: A National Park Building
Grand Teton National Park's rugged alpine landscape and stunning array of wildlife attracts over 2 million visitors every year, and the new Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitors Center at Jackson Hole, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson with exhibits by Ralph Appelbaum Associates, combines the National Park Service tradition of rusticity with an architecture that is distinctly modern.Buy
The Farrar residence is the stunning year-round home of a fascinating Park City, Utah, couple. Here, dramatic elements enliven the whole, from expansive living spaces that open to breathtaking views of the Wasatch Range, to a spellbinding glass swimming pool that cantilevers over a rushing mountain stream. The book includes color and black-and-white photographs as well as conceptual sketches, presentation drawings and construction documents.Buy
Liberty Bell Center
Opened to the public in 2003, the Liberty Bell Center is one of the highlights of Philadelphia's reconfigured Independence Mall. This book offers a close look at the building and presents an extensive set of reproductions and photographs, including records of the design and building process, that thoroughly document the building and its surroundings. The book also features essays that flesh out the building's rich context and its historical background.Buy
In this work, extremes, edges, and eccentricity combine to form an original, inspired whole. This is a moment at a clearing in the woods where stone meets log, idea meets reality, invention meets craft, function meets beauty, and the past meets the present," writes architect William Bruder in the introductory essay to Ledge House.Buy
