Renzo Piano (b.1937) is one of the world's greatest living architects. He has made his name over the last 20 years as a provocative and inventive designer, first as co-creator of the Pompidou in Paris, with Richard Rogers, and then gradually with projects as diverse as the gallery for the De Menil Collection in the United States, the Bari Sports Stadium in Italy and the Kansai Airport International Terminal in Japan.

The practice of Building Workshop practice is characterized by its sensitivity to site and local tradition as well as by its combination of traditional materials and techniques with those from the cutting edge of technology.

This first volume shows key buildings and projects from Piano's earlier career, as well as from the Building Workshop, to examine closely the evolution of his work. Renzo Piano Building Workshop: Complete Works, Volume 1 provides an illuminating study of Piano's working method, his early mentors and his architectural development, followed by an in-depth presentation of a selection of his most significant buildings and projects.
