First monograph from the award-winning New York-based architectural firm Foreword by the Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic Paul Goldberger Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership: Public/Private presents the first monograph from the award-winning New York-based architectural firm.

Covering over 40 years of work, the book - presented in a unique double-sided, two-cover format - exhibits projects in both the public and private sectors. Included in the public section is a sprawling center for entrepreneurial education, a science center built in an old turbine hall, a sky-lit synagogue, two colorful and bright public libraries, and a children's museum inspired by Leonardo da Vinci. The private side features a serenely spatial six-story townhouse, a sublimely linear beach house, a residence and matching studios for two painters, and luxurious twin villas in Anguilla.

With text by principal architect Lee Skolnick, and a foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic Paul Goldberger; each chapter provides valuable insight into the extensive planning and highly intellectual process that goes into each project. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership: Public/Private celebrates the accomplishments of a firm still operating at the top of their game.
