The nine buildings shown in this, the first monograph of the Arizona based architect Rick Joy express his interest in making spaces that are transcedent moments of space, light, and matter. In each of the projects the physical landscape, its specific environment, and its rich history are revealed and celebrated. While many of the projects here use sustainable materials like rammed earth, Joy's primary interest is in the quality of the spaces he makes. This monograph reveals an architect that builds with remarkable sensitivity and grace.
