Founded in 2006, Rafael de Cardenas's firm Architecture at Large was created after a roundabout route to architecture. His experience as a menswear designer at Calvin Klein and a creative director at the special-effects production house Imaginary Forces led him to study architecture and blend his multidisciplinary background to create spaces that are artful and highly conceptual. He is known for his bold and eye-popping projects spanning commercial and residential interiors, art objects and furniture, and pop-ups. With thematically organised chapters dedicated to his most inspirational projects and a decade of his work in vivid detail, this book is a must-have for those interested in modern spaces. From highly sculptural and geometric commercial interiors to the most sophisticated homes in Manhattan, de Cardenas and his firm infuse their work with an energetic spirit that is less about a particular style than about a mood. The book includes stunning photography alongside three insightful essays by some of the leading authorities on style and interior design.
