In this personal and revealing book, Anthony Poon takes us on a creative journey that begins with his re-envisioning of a seaside public space as a very young architect. Poon has designed hundreds of buildings across the United States and internationally, from eco-friendly homes to public schools, from intimate retail venues and restaurants to sports arenas, from university housing to retreats and places of worship.
Sticks & Stones / Steel & Glass takes us inside a purposive yet open mind always hoping to design it all,” to weave together light and material, culture and commerce, music and design, a good meal and the joy of gathering to share it.
In these pages we engage the creative processes of a thoughtful and intense architect whose workspublic and privateall strive to enhance his clients’ stories and identities. Poon’s goal in each commission is to reward those who will enjoy and inhabit the structures he designs. In every building designed by Anthony Poon art is shelter and architecture is a social good.
